The New Era of Learning
The direction in which learning is going: personalized, self-directed, grounded in the real world, and blurring the lines between age groups, teachers/students, formal/informal, etc. It taps into people's instincts and desires for play, creativity and meaning. I'm hoping to eventually incorporate this content into a robust web site that will serve as a compendium on this topic.

IFTF: Future of Learning: From Assigning to Enticing with Content

IFTF: Future of Learning: From Assigning to Enticing with Content | The New Era of Learning | Scoop.it

"If information is power, then, for the first time in history, it is now in the hands of students.

This dramatic shift will change everything about education as we have known it. Enter IFTF's newest map, Future of Learning: From Educational Institutions to Learning Flows. That title captures the shift, that schools and universities will no longer be the sole source of delivering and accrediting learning. Now, learners are designing their own “learning flows” that take them in and out of a variety of learning experiences and places, including but not limited to classrooms, and taking advantage of opportunities outside the classroom and online."

IFTF: Future Work Skills 2020

Predicting jobs in the future is tricky, but we can foresee broad trends in the types of skills that will be needed.

Luba Vangelova's insight:

Key excerpt: "

"To be successful in the next decade, individuals will need to demonstrate foresight in navigating a rapidly shifting landscape of organizational forms and skill requirements. They will increasingly be called upon to continually reassess the skills they need, and quickly put together the right resources to develop and update these. Workers in the future will need to be adaptable lifelong learners. ... The landscape has changed and educational institutions should consider how to adapt quickly in response."

KnowledgeWorks Foundation's Future Forecast

KnowledgeWorks Foundation's Future Forecast | The New Era of Learning | Scoop.it
The Future Forecast, The World of Learning and Futures Thinking describe the way KnowledgeWorks approaches educational reform.
Luba Vangelova's insight:

Interesting set of reports showing how the convergence of various trends will radically transform the learning ecosystem and put learners in the drivers seat. (And will we soon start hearing more about things such as cognitive prosthetics and social bots?) 

 

Excerpts:

"And in the future, we can expect that technology’s role will increase as new distance learning models enable innovation at the very heart of the teaching and learning relationship. In a 24/7, Internet-enabled world of learning, the nature of that relationship will undoubtedly evolve. What happens when kids are engaged in geographically-distributed learning cohorts with other students who happen to share their interests, learning styles and/or challenges?"

 

"Over the next decade, the most vibrant innovations in education are likely to take place outside traditional institutions. These institutions face a critical dilemma: how to reconcile bottom-up developments in educational with the traditional top-down hierarchy that is currently in place."

 

"This 2020 Forecast illuminates how we are shifting toward a culture of creation in which each of us has the opportunity—and the responsibility—to make our collective future. We are seeing “educitizens” define their rights as learners and re-create the civic sphere."

The Future of Hiring and Recruiting, Circa 2020-2025

The Future of Hiring and Recruiting, Circa 2020-2025 | The New Era of Learning | Scoop.it

"Maximizing personal growth and job satisfaction in the short term will maximize compensation in the long term."

Luba Vangelova's insight:

Two of his predictions in particular have implications for the type of education that will offer the most value: Assessment accuracy emerges from the dark ages, and The elimination of skills-infested job descriptions ("Skills, academics and job experiences don't predict on-the-job performance. By proving that candidates are competent and motivated to do the actual work required under the actual circumstance, you’ll discover they have the exact level of skills, experiences and academics required.")

The Future of Work (Big Data meets HR, and what it means for education)

The Future of Work (Big Data meets HR, and what it means for education) | The New Era of Learning | Scoop.it

What happens when Big Data meets human resources? The emerging practice of "people analytics" is already transforming how employers hire, fire, and promote. 

Luba Vangelova's insight:

Key takeaways with respect to education:

-- Thanks to "people analytics" (using computer algorithms to extract insights from massive amounts of digital data that's now available about job candidates and workers), the labor market is becoming "fairer to people at every stage of their careers."

 

-- One manifestation of this is that the signaling power (and therefore the value and the necessity) of a college degree is fading, now that employers can easily assess data that far better predicts people's potential. The author writes: "I spoke with managers at a lot of companies who are using advanced analytics to reevaluate and reshape their hiring, and nearly all of them told me that their research is leading them toward pools of candidates who didn’t attend college—for tech jobs, for high-end sales positions, for some managerial roles."

 

-- Instead of evaluating candidates based on how they performed on one-time snapshots taken in the "artificial environment" of a classroom, companies can look at how candidates perform in real-world situations and also review the feedback they receive from others, e.g. by analyzing their ratings in discussion forums.
