Mapping the Future of Learning
A combination of drivers is breaking learning--and education overall--out of traditional institutional environments and embedding it in everyday settings and interactions, distributed across a wide set of platforms and tools.
Diffusion of connective and mobile technologies, proliferation of open content, new modes of work, and the need for new work skills are just some of the drivers reshaping education. They are making it possible for us to take learning outside of the walls of traditional institutions and into continuous learning flows.
This map is a synthesis of key components of the emerging learning ecology. Using our forecasting methodologies such as expert workshops, interviews, data, and signals analysis, we created this map to highlight important future stories that will shape the world of learning over the next decade.
