Learners forget approximately 70% of what they’ve just been taught within 24 hours.
That’s a fact.
Sure, there’s some knowledge that remains, but 20% more disappears soon after. That is 90% in a week!
This phenomenon is called The Forgetting Curve and it is as real in corporate training as any other setting. It will happen whether we like it or not. But if we stop for a minute to take a look at what really matters in long term learning, the answer becomes clear:
To retain what we learn, we need to find a way to interrupt the forgetting process.
How do we do that?
After years of extensive empirical research, gaining deep insights into the corporate learning market through our clients, and getting input from a key SwissVBS client and early adopter of ECHO, our mobile reinforcement app, we’ve got a simple and cost-effective solution.
It all revolves around retrieval practice – the cornerstone of mobile training reinforcement.
