Networked Learning

Further to my recent post on informal learning, I just had to share this quote from Ken Carroll of On Demand Training.

“The internet is changing the way we learn and that’s because of its network qualities. I believe we’ve moved beyond the Mechanical Age, and beyond the Information Age, to the Age of Networks, and therefore to the Age of Networked Learning. Networks are every where and, as Jay Cross persuasively argues, they are changing everything, including how we learn. The last time that happened we had the Enlightenment on our hands.”

Although I don’t think that linear learning is dead, I certainly agree the age of networked learning has arrived.
