What if we could use all the technology we have in the private sector to give students a chance to prepare for what they will be doing in the real world? It turns out that wherever there is funding to do so, teachers are already implementing technology as fast as they can. Teachers understand the value of technology in the classroom as a means to provide students with educational opportunities that align with jobs they might find upon graduation, but there’s another reason teachers love tech in classrooms: personalization of education.

Endurance Learning Launches New Resource for Learning & Development

Endurance Learning | August 17, 2021

Endurance Learning has launched a new website going in-depth into 51 Elements of Amazing Learning Experiences, as defined in Brian Washburn's book, What's Your Formula?: Combine Learning Elements for Impactful Training. The companion website lets anyone in the Learning & Development field dig deeper into all 51 elements and find more resources to learn and explore. "When Brian came to me with his first draft of the book, I almost immediately thought about how valuable this information could be in a free resource on the web," said Tim Waxenfelter, COO and co-founder of Endurance Learning. "Our hope is that the elements and formula analogies help trainers to more easily visualize strategies which they can apply immediately to their learning programs." From critical gas-like elements like the air we breathe, present in every training room (think instructional design or visual design), to radioactive elements, powerful and dangerous yet commonly used (think PowerPoint), the new site lets every learning and development professional explore the elements and how they interact. Whether you're an experienced learning designer or new to the field, this website, and the book that inspired it, was created to help you find inspiration for your next training program. "I'm incredibly proud of the book and believe that readers will and should want more from it once they finish. If we're trying to innovate and create a more powerful learning experience, experimenting is going to be part of that process. 51elementsoflearning.com was built to support professionals as they try new approaches to learning." said Brian Washburn, CEO and co-founder of Endurance Learning. About Endurance Learning Endurance Learning was founded by instructional designers with a deep background in adult learning. Endurance Learning has leveraged its experience developing custom in-person, virtual and elearning to create Soapbox.

Luca & Friends is the First Educational App for Kids Using AI Technology to Combine Learning and Fitness

GOFA INTERNATIONAL | February 04, 2022

The World Health Organization recommends 60 minutes of exercise daily, yet 76% of American kids are falling short of that goal. To help families, schools and out-of-school time programs address this issue in today's tech-driven world, the health and fitness company GOFA INTERNATIONAL has launched Luca & Friends, a new ground-breaking app that uses AI (artificial intelligence) technology to get kids moving through fun, immersive educational games. Luca & Friends is the first app in the U.S. to combine learning and fitness via cutting-edge AI motion technology. Designed for kids ages 4-8, the app provides an interactive learning experience in which players play games by moving to select the right answers. Using basic movements and following simple directions, players might stretch or jump in order to "touch" or "catch" the right answers, helping them build strength, endurance, coordination and flexibility while practicing English and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) skills. "In an age where kids are spending more and more time in front of their screens, we have created a way to make that time more educational and active. This app includes principles of English such as nouns and grammar, as well as STEM content such as knowledge of insects, vegetables and fruits and skip counting, and provides kids with fun, exciting and engaging games designed to help instill healthy habits. Through the use of AI technology, these games encourage movement and learning, giving kids the perfect platform on which to improve their knowledge and increase their daily exercise." Wayne Chung, CEO and Co-Founder of GOFA INTERNATIONAL, creators of Luca & Friends The Luca & Friends story centers on a "galaxy far, far away" where Prince Luca and his alien friends Pumkey, Digby, and Mighty Coca, embark on a mission to save Earth from hate, fighting and hurt. The characters then appear in the app to connect kids to the exciting worlds of learning and movement. Key features of Luca & Friends will include: Social interaction - All games are socially interactive with a leader board and other social elements. Educational Content - Luca & Friends offers over 100 lessons and activities covering English and STEM topics. All content has been created by accredited teachers and trainers and is linked to curriculum standards. Rewards - Luca & Friends offers loyalty and reward programs to motivate kids to stay active. Parent Dashboard (Coming Late Feb 2022) - The Parent Zone progress dashboard shows parents the play history for their child and allows them to track their child's growth status. Playback Mode - The app collects a short video of the player so they can see themselves move during gameplay. A "quiet mode" (Coming Late Feb 2022) - Players can revert back to touch-screen play in situations where there isn't the opportunity to move around. Multiple display options - While the app is recommended for iPad and tablet use, players can also connect their device to a large-format smart TV through AirPlay or Chromecast and play in front of the larger screen. About Luca & Friends Luca & Friends' mission is to connect primary school-aged children to education, fitness and healthier habits through the use of AI technology. Its vision is to transform lifestyles every day through its mantra "Move, Learn. Play." Powered by the AI technology of its parent company GOFA INTERNATIONAL, Luca & Friends is the first mobile device app in the U.S to combine learning and fitness via cutting-edge AI motion technology. It provides an immersive and interactive learning experience that gets kids moving while also strengthening their English and STEM skills.
