There are some great ideas here. I'm a particular fan of the sections on Streamlined Assessment and Peer-to-Peer Learning. #edtech   #onlinelearning   #onlineinstruction

Good read on how to make employee development/professional development more accessible and more appealing in an age when many employees would rather Google a topic than participate in formal learning. 

A line that resonated with me in this article...

"The more a platform integrates with learners’ work patterns, the more likely learners will be to recommend it to their co-workers."

As learning technology companies merge, there are fewer big players but more opportunity for better content and delivery.

The falls are awesome! If you really want to get up close to the lower falls, you can take the nature trail at the south end of the parking lot. The trail goes 1 mile to the lower falls. It stops on the plateau just above the falls. 20-50 yards up stream from the falls there is a trail that goes down the plateau and ends at the waters edge. Be careful, this last section is difficult and dangerous with small children.

The Rails to Trails trail can be accessed at the North end of the parking lot. There is a tunnel that heads east under the highway and takes you right to the trail. We rode the trail north for about 5 miles on mountain bikes. The canyon is pretty for the first 2-3 miles. After about mile 3 or 4 the trail becomes an ATV accessible road and is pretty crowded with dirt bikes and Razors.

We purchased the Groupon they had recently for our family reunion. We had 12 adults and 17 children. The guides were great with our kids. We asked a lot of them since we all wanted to ride together and they did their best to accomodate us. Putting this many people in a group was a little hard for the guides and the horses, but that is to be expected. The horses were good with our kids, and the views were pretty great as well. The trail they took us on had 2 creek crossings, and passed some waterfalls. For the experience and amount of time (2hrs.) this was a great trip.

Love, love, love this trail. If you love Yellowstone, but hate the boardwalks and crowds, this is a must do hike or bike ride. It's flat and follows the Firehole River most of the way to the guyser. Our little kids (ages 3 - 5) hiked almost the entire way there and back. Check with the park officials to get an estimated time of eruption and see if you can time it right. We missed the eruption, but the hike was so fun, we didn't even care.

This place was hot, smelly, and dirty. I smelled marijuana in the back hallway. There were sketchy characters wandering around the property. Our room was 80 degrees when we checked in, and it took nearly 2 hours to get it comfortable. I wished I had paid the extra $20 to stay someplace not quite so shady. I really didn't feel like my family was safe here.

Good hike for the whole family. Great views of the Tetons. Some great spots for family pictures. Easy hike to do in about 1-2 hours.

Targhee Creek Trail is a good, unknown trail. The road to the trailhead is slightly hidden by a guardrail, and is identified with only 1 small forest service sign. It's easily missed. The trail is primarily used for hiking and mountain biking. The first 2-3 miles are pretty flat and wander through some meadows that follow the creek. After the trail crosses the creek the 2nd time the trail gets pretty steep and stays that way for another mile or so. It's so steep in this section that it's almost impossible to ride a mountain bike up. After this section the trail levels off better and you can see some remote wilderness with some great views. Whether you want a day hike, short ride, or overnight backpacking trip, this trail has a lot to offer.
