Learning: Workplace

For it to work, the learner must see clear value to them in undertaking your training. Here we see how we teach mathematical techniques to apprentice carpenters as they undertake the computations necessary to build the deck.

The learning object goes beyond simply asking mathematical questions to creating a need, interacting with “the boss” and “the client” and ultimately seeing a finished built deck as the reward. A popular feature of this learning object is the drag-able measuring tape which adds fun and thus engagement to the activity.
