The science behind Grovo

Drive quick, meaningful, and lasting performance improvements with Grovo‚Äôs learner-first method

We believe everything starts with the learner

A large training library or the latest admin features are wasted without a superior learning experience to ensure that knowledge is retained and put into practice. Grovo's learner-first method combines elements of holistic learning, competency-based learning, and microlearning to drive the best performance results in the shortest time.

Engaging

Engaging

Grovo training is short, beautiful, clear, and relevant to daily life and work. As a result, the average Grovo learner completes 50% more training than assigned

Personalized

Personalized

Grovo determines a learner's current skill level to create a personalized training program that starts with fundamentals and gradually builds up to expert-level tips and techniques

Empowering

By focusing on best practices, alternative approaches, common challenges and more, Grovo empowers and motivates learners to put their skills to use

What is microlearning?

Microlearning is the process of learning complex ideas and skills through short and focused segments. Grovo breaks material down into 60–90 second videos that communicate all the necessary information without any fluff.

Benefits of microlearning

Benefits of microlearning

  • Microlearning finds a more favorable reaction from learners, better learning scores, and better retention scores

  • Learners take short assessments in between training items to test understanding and retention as they go

  • Bite-size content is key to keeping training relevant and accurate. As the digital world changes, Grovo keeps up by producing 15 new videos a day

Since the advent of the Web, the way in which people consume information has changed, and attention spans have decreased. The longer the training material, the greater the risk of boring learners or presenting more information than can be retained at once.

What is competency-based learning?

Competency-based learning defines the minimum competencies required to perform a skill at different levels and for different roles.

The core of the Grovo library are the 8 digital competencies required of anyone who uses a computer for work:

  1. Communication
  2. Working with documents
  3. Project collaboration & management
  4. Attention management (e.g. mindfulness, good workflow habits, etc.)
  1. Digital etiquette
  2. Search & research
  3. Security & privacy
  4. Platform flexibility (i.e. general fluency with devices, OSs, browsers, and cloud platforms)
Benefits of compentency-based learning

Benefits of competency-based learning

  • Learners get a concrete picture of the knowledge, skills, and behaviors required for success and how to move forward

  • Competencies are based on actions, rather than topics, which ties learning directly to job performance

  • Learners who demonstrate their level of competency can start further along on the development path

Without compentencies

Without competencies

Competencies allow you to set development goals. Without them, it's easy to focus too much on titles of training courses, or to overvalue the number of hours or training sessions a learner puts in. If your goal is to improve actual performance, competency-based learning will put you in the right mindset.

What is holistic learning?

Holistic learning combines different types of ideas and perspectives to encourage a deeper understanding of training material.

The Grovo method helps learners achieve a comprehensive, 360° view of each topic by weaving together multiple perspectives, including:

Benefits of holistic learning

Benefits of holistic learning

  • Each new perspective builds up context for learners, communicating both the big picture and the important details of a topic

  • Attacking a topic from several angles teaches learners multiple ways to achieve a desired outcome if one approach fails

  • By focusing on how different concepts connect and overlap, learners gain deep knowledge they can quickly call upon in performance situations

The keys to learning holistically are context and comprehensiveness. Without either, learners may have wide skills gaps without even realizing it. Imagine a martial artist who was only trained to punch. Or one who was trained to punch and kick, but not when to do which.
