I attended the Edtech day of Phoenix Startup Week last week. And today some of the presentations went live on slideshare.

I'm always looking for new innovative learning solutions to share with the L&D industry and this got me thinking of a lot of things.
What got my attention was the scientific approach they took to solving a knowledge problem.

And no, these aren't just your average flashcards.
