One of the biggest challenges for Instructional Designers is to keep track of constant changes in Training and Development (T&D). You know how to handle workshops and seminars, but do you know how to match them with a back channel or community in practice? Do you know how to use big data to shape your Training and Development plans, or how to engage virtual agents in developing skills of people you are responsible for? Many of us educators know or remember only a few Training and Development methods; and even when learning about new methods, we are used to stick to those we are most familiar with.

There are at least 2 barriers limiting the optimal usage of Training and Development methods by educators: Knowing the method.Understanding how to effectively use it. We decided to create a concept, and a product, called Learning Battle Cards (LBC) which aims to break these barriers. While building it we reached for 4 inspirations: There are 4 goals of Learning Battle Cards:

The Teacher's Guide To Flipped Classrooms. Since Jonathan Bergman and Aaron Sams first experimented with the idea in their Colorado classrooms in 2004, flipped learning has exploded onto the larger educational scene. It’s been one of the hottest topics in education for several years running and doesn’t seem to be losing steam. Basically, it all started when Bergman and Sams first came across a technology that makes it easy to record videos. They had a lot of students that regularly missed class and saw an opportunity to make sure that missing class didn’t mean missing out on the lessons.

Once students had the option of reviewing the lessons at home, the teachers quickly realized the shift opened up additional time in class for more productive, interactive activities than the lectures they’d been giving. And voila: a movement began. A 2014 survey from the Flipped Learning network found that 78% of teachers said they’d flipped a lesson, and 96% of those that tried it said they’d recommend it.

Thanks to the folks over at Khan Academy, alternative modes of delivering classroom instruction are all the rage. We’ve got face to face models, labs, rotations, online-only, self-blend, and of course, flipped.

While there are numerous ways to implement a flipped classroom, the basic components include some form of prerecorded lectures that are then followed by in-class work. Flipped classrooms are heralded for many reasons. For one thing, students can learn at their own pace when they’re watching lectures at home. Viewing recorded lessons allows students to rewind and watch content again, fast forward through previously learned material, and pause and reflect on new material.

During traditional face-to-face class lectures, students spend so much time trying to keep up while taking notes they often miss crucial information. Students who watch lessons at home, then come to class prepared to do creative work. Sounds amazing, right? 10 Resources for Your Flipped Classroom In Short. Twitter for Educators.

Speakers of the two languages put different emphasis on actions and their consequences, influencing the way they think about the world, according to a new study.

The work also finds that bilinguals may get the best of both worldviews, as their thinking can be more flexible. Cognitive scientists have debated whether your native language shapes how you think since the 1940s. The idea has seen a revival in recent decades, as a growing number of studies suggested that language can prompt speakers to pay attention to certain features of the world.

The fact is that American adults are largely monolingual English speakers, even those who began life speaking more than one language. Based on the latest research, it might be time to rethink the emphasis on monolingualism in the US. Speaking two languages has advantages Over the past decade, my research has focused on the academic, social, and civic development of immigrant youth, specifically the ways in which schools shape how these students experience learning, friendships, and their communities.
