Are you a Learning Explorer?
Think, for a moment, about the way learning has changed. How much have you learned this week while sitting in a physical classroom listening to an instructor? Probably nothing. Whatever you learned this week was probably done informally—either online or by speaking with a friend. And of those two sources, we bet you unearthed your answers by yourself—online. Technological advances are taking the traditional learning model and breaking it into billions and billions of pieces of information that we call Learning Fragments.To prove this point, keep track each time you search for something on Google—your digital shovel. We can absolutely guarantee you have discovered at least one Learning Fragment today: in fact you’re reading it now! These fragments are being created and discovered every minute of every hour—turning us all into Learning Explorers.
