Knowledge, Learning, Community

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.
