In case you still have a case of vacation brain from enjoying a fabulous holiday break and too much chocolate, here are some training resources.
* Thiagi is the king of using games as learning activities. (Remember to call it a learning activity, not a game, or you will instantly create resistance in workplace settings especially.) Thiagi’s website offers more than 300 ready-to-use training games and activities. He also has an email newsletter.
* Christie Sterns offers a regular email newsletter with creative ways to teach. Her compiled email newsletters and her book 425 Seriously Fun Ways to Enhance Learning…and Make it Stick! are great resources as well.
* If you’re an Apple addict like myself, check out the Zite app. It sifts through the news in adult education for me, so I just need to open the app to see what’s new. Here’s how the developer says it works, “Zite evaluates millions of new stories every day, looking at the type of article, its key attributes and how it is shared across the web. Zite uses this information to match stories to your personal interests and then delivers them automatically to your iPad or iPhone.”
