Tech advancements throughout the 21st century
There’s no denying that technology has come on in leaps and bounds over the past couple of decades, with tech now being part and parcel of life in the modern world.
Yet, can you believe that (Dates taken from FEE):
- Apple’s first iPhone only came out in 2007?
- The first USB stick was sold in 2000? (Long gone are the days of the 90s floppy disks!)
- Skype only originated back in 2003, yet so many of our conversations are now video calls (and meetings are Zoom/Teams/Hangouts)
If you said “Virtual Reality” to anyone in the 80s or 90s, we can near enough point-blank say that the vast majority of the population wouldn’t have known what you were talking about. VR isn’t a new creation, yet it has only come to fruition in recent years with how useful a tool it is in both the gaming industry and for companies like ours, the Learning & Development industry.
Training often takes the shape of e-learning, or classroom-based training. However, newer technologies are slowly edging their way into the way in which businesses conduct their training. PWC completed a survey recently which demonstrated that VR can actually help leaders up-skill their employees at a faster, and more efficient rate. Furthermore, thanks to the evolution of VR, this is an affordable adoption of new tech; and due to social distancing, this is a realistic alternative to face-to-face training.
