Over the next decade learning professionals and educators will experience the most transformation of learning in any single decade in history. Social, generational and technology shifts are causing a disruption, changing forever how we deliver and receive learning. Teaching and learning will be less structured, more informal, self-enabled, interactive and collaborative. Our learning world will rapidly become virtual, simulated and mobile. Students and learners will demand new cultures of learning, including robust portals, instant access to knowledge and a distributed model of access to where and how they get their knowledge. Learning leaders have started their journey to embrace new ideas and technology. But it is time we look at them with a unified approach. Unified learning makes communication instant, collaboration continuous, learning accessible, personal and meaningful for the 21st century learner.
In this fast paced opening session, HR and Learning Futurist Rick Von Feldt will describe the future unified landscape of a 2020 learning environment. He will describe the dramatic shifts in how learners will create, communicate and consume knowledge and skill. We will look at the latest learning transformations, including mobile learning, open source and informal knowledge, multi-media learning, social platforms and portals and the impact of the gamification of learning. We look at best in class example of forward thinking universities and companies already embracing the future of learning. Rick will give us a look at the 12 learning principles for a 2020 learning model and make predictions on how different things will be by 2020.
