Complex Learning is a pedagogical approach based on personalization, hybridization of learning environments, tools and codes, and participatory learning. In this approach students are supported to become active users and co-producers of learning sources, within the paradigms of complexity, transactional theory and ubiquitous learning. Complex Learning is able to face the challenge of rethinking teaching and learning, empowering and renewing adult learners and trainers competences, attitudes, expectations and effort. Here I gather the papers and presentations about the vision of Complex Learning I have developed with my collegues in the later years, and other scientific studies and works by researchers and specialists.

As humans are continually developing socially, they keep learning throughout entire lives through: formal, nonformal and informal processes; cognitive, experiential and emotional dimensions; very diverse patterns;
individually and socially based contents, places and contexts. PLE, social based and informal learning, eLearning 2.0, connective and adaptive learning represent innovative approaches (to some extents still experimental) building a new learning culture and processes. Learning is interactive, non-linear and informal.

Do you know the history of social media? Think we'll remember Facebook in 20 years? This detailed timeline is a must-see.
Social media began decades before the Facebook era. It started, more or less, with CompuServe and Arpanet back in 1969. A couple years later, the first-ever email was sent.
