This great little video , posted by Tribal on YouTube recently is a wonderful example of how creative use of technology, together with the personal touch ( in this case, encouragement and support by one of the 22,000 Union learn reps) can deliver learning right at the point of need.

This is just one of the projects highlighted at the Bite-sized Learning Opportunities On Mobiles(BLOOM) project showcase at the House of Commons earlier this week.
This european funded project aims to deliver workplace training for the logistics and passenger transport sectors in contextualised basic skills using a variety of mobile phone technologies. It looks to address the findings of recent studies that identified wide-scale basic skills shortages and the negative impact of this on the industries and the individual.
This story is a great example of impact of innovation on individual who don't always have time to train. It has come about through partnerhips between providers, sector skills councils ( in this case GoSkills) and unions to creatively apply technology to adress important learning needs of busy people, regardless of location and experience.
