MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Alabama –
Earlier in 2021, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. released his strategic initiative, Accelerate Change or Lose, in which he highlighted why changes in the US Air Strength are needed. General Brown’s initiative presents four lines of action, focusing on people, decision-making, competition and adaptation to change.
Kicking off this morning on the last day of the 2021 Virtual Air University Languages, Regional Expertise and Culture Symposium, Air Force Cultural and Linguistic Center Director Howard Ward gave a demonstration live from the highly updated Culture 2.0 application.
Ward described the new AFCLC 2.0 app as a one-stop-shop for an “accessible, relevant and impactful curriculum” in addition to field guides on culture. A method of delivery that can deploy a program enterprise-wide, independent of the constraints of government systems, which is of particular interest to Total Force Airmen, and designed to accelerate the learning of strategic competition by putting Global Classroom in your pocket.
Today, the AFCLC unveiled significant upgrades to its mobile app, which the Wall Street Journal has already recognized as one of six must-have apps for business travelers. Changes to the app include:
• Improved accessibility to AFCLC Expeditionary Culture Field Guides – users no longer need to download any of the 69 guides to view their content. Touch the block containing the name of the guide to open it. In addition, seven new ECFGs are on the way.
• Accelerated Learning for Strategic Competition – Tap the Course button at the bottom of the screen to view our first new course. The development of cultural competence is designed to orient the user on what culture is, why it is important to an aviator or guard and how he can learn more as his career progresses. Two more courses will be available soon. These courses will enable each member to individually achieve General Brown’s Charlie Order of Action by learning the fundamentals of culture for the understanding of the adversary. At the end of these courses, users will receive a certificate ready to be uploaded to their learning folder.
• A video library will soon be available to further enhance learning capabilities on the go.
The app is available to all military service members and civilians through the App Store, Google Play, and is safe for Department of Defense mobile devices. More than 20,000 people already use the application, and for these people, an automatic update to version 2.0 is now available.
