According to the prefix, "This report sets forth a vision that stems from the premise that the learner needs to be at the center of novel approaches and innovative learning networks." It identifies a pervasive probllem, the "silos" that make a learner-centered system difficult to implement. Here are their recommendations (abridged):
- Redesign learning environments to empower learners to learn any time, any place.
- Enhance the ability of educators to support and guide learners in a networked learning environment.
- Build an infrastructure that will connect all students in all of the places they learn.
- Support the maximum feasible degree of interoperability across learning networks.
- Adopt policies to incorporate digital, media and social-emotional literacies as basic skills for living and learning in the digital age.
- Create Trusted Environments for Learning.
Well here's the good news. This is exactly what our Learning and Performance Support Systems (LPSS) program is doing here at the National Research Council. I talk more about it here. We are staffed, well into the development process, and identifying partners for projects and collaborative research.
