21st Century Learning

Our Think Tank online magazine represents 21st century learning. Just as you might come across an interesting video on the Internet, click links to read more about it, and then discuss it with colleagues, our Think Tanks work that way too. Each issue starts with a media broadcast, such as a TED Talk on the brain science topic featured in the issue. This is followed by a Think Tank of teachers and researchers writing more about the topic and how it applies to the language classroom. The final Plus section includes book reviews, reader spotlights, and other special contributions.

Design for Learning

September 2021

Design is all around us in our classrooms–in our textbooks, our presentations, in our decorations, in our desks, and more–yet we hardly give it much thought as language teachers. This issue is all about highlighting the extensive ways we can make use of the power of design in our lessons.

Our cover: “The alternative to good design is always bad design. There is no such thing as no design.” –  Adam Judge, author
