Propositions on learning today
I’m trying to define the core changes in society and technology that impact learning. I’ve compiled ten propositions, and would life to hear areas that you feel I’m missing (or where I’m flat out wrong).
I’m bringing two basic assumptions to this list – 1) learning is a process, not an event 2) learning intention drives learning approach.
My (evolving list of) learning propositions:
Increased complexity=increased decentralization
Increased information amount=decreased capacity to internalize
Accelerated pace of information development=decreased linearity
Increased pace, information amount, and complexity=increased ambiguity
Increased ambiguity=increased need for diversity
Increased diversity=increased need for openness
New tools/technology and openness=new affordances and transformations
Democratization=destabilization of silo power structures and two-way flow (conversation, knowledge, and information)
Two-way flow=equality among participants of a space
