Technology has enabled us to interact, innovate and share in new ways. This dynamic shift in mindset is creating profound changes throughout our society. The film « Future of Learning », produced by Eriksson telecommunication company takes a look at one part of that change, the potential to redefine how we learn and educate. Can ICT really redefine the way we learn in the Networked Society? This 20- minute documentary presents in an excellent way the point of view of world renowned experts and educators and points out to the conclusion that ICT has the potential to shift away from traditional methods of learning based on memorization and repetition to more holistic approaches that focus on individual students’ needs and self expression.
“Learning and education are in a time of transformation. Our research shows that students and progressive teachers, empowered by technology, are the catalysts to fundamental change. ICT is literally breaking down the walls of the classroom, and we have to start looking upon learning as something that takes place everywhere, all the time. Going toward the Networked Society, ICT will be increasingly important to lifelong learning.” says Mikael Eriksson Björling, Expert on Consumer Behavior at ConsumerLab
