Hello everyone, on November 7th I want to explore what "proof" means. Who... needs what... to have something proven to them?
It's easy to think it's just about the statistics: x number of people have shown x amount of measurable improvement as a result of a learning program. That proves it works... right?
But is that enough? Is it enough for all of the people you need buy-in from?
Let me know your thoughts.
Thanks Greg - I think Mark Twain had some memorable insights regarding statistics.
I read an interesting article titled "Why Facts Don't Matter." I will be interested to hear what others think - before - during and after you segment of Georgia LEARNS.
Paul - yes indeed Mark Twain had some pretty strong words on this topic.
Thank you so much for the reference to the article!
Greg - I look forward to your segment. The word "proof" has such power from the pudding to a bottle of rum. It will be good to hear your thoughts on its meaning in the learning space.
Thank you, Donna - I look forward to interacting with you on Thursday, and exploring this topic further together!
