The world of learning is transforming at a very rapid pace. Over decades the modus of learning has been – I know, You don’t know. Let me teach you. The world has transformed so rapidly in the last 10 years through the advent of social media that learning has moved from I know You don’t…, to neither of us know everything but between us, we all know a lot.
This has grossly disrupted the way the world is evolving each year. Google has become the biggest “guru” not because google has all the answers. It is because, more than half the world is on google and they are sharing information freely to help others. Google by itself isn’t much, it is the wisdom & IQ of the world who live on google daily who have made it so valuable today.
What does that mean for learning? The world of learning will move to crowd sourcing of knowledge & content at a rapid pace. Anyone can learn, at any time and from anywhere ! There will be no fixed place from where he will learn. The world of learning has to be a market place for people to be able to play around and pick what they wish to learn. So the biggest challenge will be to organise the learning market place across the world. To find something today in the world of disorganised internet information pile, is a kin to rag picking. It will be imperative for the world of learning to organise itself in order for the learner to easily find what he/she would be looking for. Coming together and collaborating vs. competing with each other is likely to be the way forward.
