Learning networks and learning communities

by

George Siemens posts some thoughts about Learning communities and learning networks, concluding
“I sincerely believe that communities and networks are the future of learning. Course and programs will continue to face pressure to adapt�and institutions that fail to grasp this reality will be unable to continue to meet the needs of learners. It might sound too extreme right now, but all the indicators (technology, social, learner needs, viability, trends, etc.) point to this model. As much as society and technology have changed, it seems odd that how we learn is still modeled on an environment that no longer exists. I think we are at the beginning stages of rapidly accelerating adoption of (and creation of tools and methodologies for) communities and learning networks.”
