Changing the way we learn
The early 21st century is proving to an era of unprecedentedly fast and relentlessly accelerating change. Initially this change is technological, but ultimately it will also be societal. This article discusses the relationship between this era of change and the quantity and quality of learning it will demand. It also considers the mechanisms by which that new model learning might be delivered.
In the 20th century those entering the workplace might expect to keep the same job throughout their working lives. In the 21st century new entrants might expect to change job, and even occupation, several times before retirement. The 21st century citizen will need learning for each transition.
