EDTECH: Focus On Higher Education - EDUCAUSE 2011: Pew Research Reveals New Kinds of Learners | Innovations in e-Learning | Scoop.it

"In a Thursday afternoon session at EDUCAUSE, Lee Rainie, the project’s director, explored how Pew’s latest research findings on how people use mobile devices dovetail with education. His remarks centered on three “Digital Revolutions” that have altered the way we learn and share information. Collectively, the rise of Internet and broadband adoption in the home (Revolution No. 1), the emergence of social networking (Revolution No. 2) and the evolution of mobile capabilities (Revolution No. 3) have transformed learning into an anytime, anywhere event. The result, Rainie said, is that “we are all in this together, creating knowledge together." Marla Misek Clark
