Learning on the Go

According to Rainie, Pew Research Center’s Pew Internet & American Life Project, the “new kinds of learners” emerging in this evolving digital environment are:

  • more self-directed (and less top-down) in their acquisition and sharing of knowledge;
  • better arrayed to capture new information inputs;
  • more reliant on feedback;
  • more inclined to collaborate;
  • more open to cross-disciplinary insights and creating their own “tagged” taxonomies; and
  • more oriented toward people acting as their own individual nodes of production.
