BOLD – the Blog on Learning and Development – was launched in 2016. In the first days of this new venture, founding Editor-in-Chief Sabine Gysi explained that BOLD was being created to communicate, debate and translate into action, research findings concerning child and youth development. Over the past five and a half years, BOLD has continued to pursue this goal, along the way maturing into what you see today. We work with researchers, practitioners and journalists from around the world to create articles, interviews, podcasts, videos and much more.
“BOLD has published almost 700 articles, videos and podcast episodes, from more than 250 contributors around the world.”
The next stage in BOLD’s journey began in 2020 with a simple question. Could a ‘Blog on Learning and Development’ expand to become more than just a blog? Our answer was a resounding ‘yes’ – and with that goal in mind, we began asking questions of our readers: What is it about BOLD that makes it special? What could we improve?
The new BOLD reflects the feedback we have received over the last year and a half. It’s modern, fresh, and easy to navigate. It is simpler than ever before to find the content you’re looking for by exploring our four new hubs – Development, Learning & Education, Technology, and Society – with the help of a powerful new search function. And this is just the beginning! Stay tuned this year for more great content, and more ways to access that content.
BOLD has published almost 700 articles, videos and podcast episodes, from more than 250 contributors around the world. Emerging and established researchers, practitioners, and journalists share their work with us. If you’d like to be part of BOLD, please get in touch.
“BOLD continues to ask the big questions, synthesising the science.”
We still believe that teachers, decision makers, parents, and anyone with an interest in child development and learning should have access to the latest news, research, and opinions in this field. BOLD continues to ask the big questions, synthesising the science. What is the role of genes in development? How has Covid-19 impacted learning? What makes EdTech truly educational? Our hope is that fostering these discussions and spreading the word will ultimately improve the learning and life chances of children around the world.
As we start 2022, we’d like to thank our readers who have been with us since the beginning, and those who have joined along the way. We hope you have fun exploring the new BOLD!
