Future Learning – Integrating Personal Learning and Working Environments

Instead of the present massification of education, learners are encouraged and supported in developing personal learning pathways. Formal education and informal learning become ever more separate. Learners develop their own e-Portfolio. As the education system becomes fragmented, learners increasingly turn to private online education and training providers. A new model of open education emerges. As the education system fails to cope with changing society, new forms of education evolve based on learning in the community, both face to face and online. Learning is ever more embedded within community and work structures and systems, and schools become community learning resource centres. Society is effectively deschooled. Technology to support learning is embedded in the workplace. Employers increasingly see the importance of learning for innovation and seek to develop learning rich work environments. Learning and working become part of the same process. Informal communities of practice, based on social networking technology, become acknowledged as the major source of learning.
