Education 3.0 –

I read a great article that suggests we have entered Education 3.0 – an era of resource abundance characterized by changes in the way we learn. According to C.J. Bonk, over the past 10 years, learning has changed in at least 30 different ways. Among these, learning is increasingly collaborative, global, modifiable, mobile, open, online, instantaneous, and personal. These 30 learning and technology-related changes reflect three distinct mega-trends: 

1.)  learner engagement,
2.)
the pervasive access to learning, and
3.) the customization and personalization of learning.

I illustrated the trends and changes in the table below.
