Technology is changing the experiences of learning with increasing speed. The span of technological change in the last few decades seems massive, but in reality it is only the beginning of a new era. With technology driving change, what is learnt one day can be outdated the next. The applied use of technology has the potential to accelerate personal growth in learning and enable learning to happen ‘anywhere, anytime and anyhow.’
The potentially unlimited boundaries of digital space can extend the parameters of physical space- the opportunities created by digital spaces are therefore potentially limitless. Technology enables a learner to move seamlessly from the real world, to a digital world in a microsecond.
Digital platforms are powerful tools to support and extend paradigm shifts. A digital platform can create and analyse data, providing real time support to a learning experience. This is relevant at both personal and collective levels. Digital platforms can be the gateway to capturing a learner’s journey, making any learning visible to any audience.
