    Learning communities – gezamenlijke Topsectoren

    A lifelong learning and development. For some, it’s music to their ears. For others, it’s an impossible task. In an ever-faster and changing world, where technology develops rapidly, people need to improve their skills constantly. And social challenges, such as climate change and an ageing population, require new knowledge and creative solutions from people of all layers of society and all age groups. To keep up to date and find solutions to these social challenges, a lifelong learning and development becomes increasingly important for everyone. Currently, however, it is expensive to keep up to date. Funding is different for everybody. This deprives people of the chance to manage their personal…

    Why Discovery Tour Makes Assassin’s Creed a Great Learning Game

    What if I told you that “Assassin’s Creed Origins” was my favorite learning game of the year, maybe? Possibly? You’d probably be a little suspicious, because it features all that violence. But with the new Discovery Tour feature, they take all that out, and really put forward the latent learning that’s always been there in the game, and let players explore the world totally freely, but with the help of historical context. It’s really a compelling experience. And let’s take a look. # # GAME NARRATOR: Welcome to the agora and thermal baths. (footsteps) (indistinct conversations) Cyrene’s agora was the public marketplace and political hub of the city. Its central…

    Best Learning Toys for Toddlers & Babies: Learning for Kids | LeapFrog

    Babies and toddlers are growing and changing at such a rapid rate that it can be challenging to find just the right toy for them.

Repetition is how young children feel mastery and they can predict what’s going to happen next. When you’re looking for books for 1 year olds, you may want to have board…
