16 Learning Trends, We Simply CAN'T Ignore!


Here are 16 learning trends that I believe we simply can't ignore in 2013 and beyond:

16 Learning Trends, We Simply CAN'T Ignore! from Zaid Alsagoff

By 'WE', I mean all educators in primary, secondary, and tertiary (and even corporate) education. Whether, we like it or not, these 16 learning trends (some have been around for donkey years, but are beginning to really take off now) will have an increasingly impact on the way we learn. Some will have more impact than others (depending upon your context), and some of these trends I might have gotten completely wrong (too bad!).

More importantly, as the public begin to embrace these learning trends on a large scale, there will become an increasingly loud cry from them for quality improvements and disruptive changes in all levels of education. Are you ready for that?  


And some learning trends I have perhaps overlooked (or ignored, because I think their are just fads), or simply missed out (still learning). If there are any learning trends that you would like to suggest, or add to these 16 highlighted, please post your thoughts in the comments section below, or via Twitter (and Facebook).
I have only tried to include learning trends that I personally think will still be relevant 2-5 years down the road, too.


First, this presentation must be the shortest slide-deck I have ever published on SlideShare (Congrats)! Secondly, I will hopefully create a  narrated version of this presentation that explores and tries to makes sense of these 16 learning trends (or more) in my own words soon...Stay tuned for that in the coming weeks. 

 Time to rethink education and learning? What do you think? :)

MOOC's are becoming more and more popular. I have just finished one called E-Learning and digital culture. I found it very interesting. I teach with blended learning techniques. I was fascinated how the course ran with thousands of learners and five professors. Perr review replaced individual review and computer aided learning was invaluable.
