Learning loops refer to a circular system based on personalization: one situation and one learner.
Generally, once the learning cycle is finished, improvements are applied and the process starts again, including what has already been learned and evolving the spiral.
The Learning Loop is developed in four phases:
- Apply what has been learned
- Analyze what we have achieved with what we have learned and whether we have applied it correctly.
- Review the results to plan the next loop
Learning loops can be used in the field of education, in the business world, in productivity or in any field that has to do with problem-solving, etc.
