The Learning Age


"This isn't the Information Age, it's the Learning Age; and the quicker people get their heads around that, the better" Professeur Stephen Heppell

Heppel's remarks appear in this short video on the future of learning which asks the key question "What do we want to do" (with all of this networked information technology).

With the development of social networks, the integration of learning and work is not some ideal; it is a necessity in a complex world.

There is little doubt that we need systemic change to prepare for the Learning Age, the signals are everywhere and the conversations are getting louder.

I mentioned that I was connected on Twitter to a person working on similar things and that I could introduce them. On checking the name, we discovered that all of these people worked in the same organization but didn't know what the others were doing.
