From “knowledge worker” to “learning worker”: what this means for an organisation

Jane Hart, Learning in the Social Workplace, May 11, 2015
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Why can't all this be true of learning as well as working. Think about what the principles would become:

  • has a flexible learning environment
  • can customize own learning
  • shares learning resources
  • uses new ways to communicate and cooperate
  • can become a learning leader
  • shifts from knowledge learner to learning learner
  • learns and teaches at will

I see no reason why the learning place of the future couldn't be one where people organize and manage their own learning, and where learning professionals offer support, not instruction.
