2015 EDU: PEOPLE: Living in the New Digital Learning Age

Living in the New Digital Learning Age

Are you a confident creator?  Are you among the held back?   Are you a safety firster?  It matters for your future.  Think how things were in 2001.  Have you handled any changes?  Did you cope with them?  Did you master and use them?  Will there be any changes in the next 15 years?  How will you deal with them?   

The new digital learning age has three main groups who experience technological change in different ways: the confident creators, the held back and the safety firsters. Anthony Painter, Director of Policy and Strategy at the RSA, discusses the attributes of each group and how a ‘cities of learning’ initiative could help more people benefit from the new digital learning age.

    Tech change has been producing these groups ever since humans invented it.  But in the past,it has been slow enough that skills did not become obsolete so fast.  Young people became confident creators.  Old people became safety firsters.  
    - I suppose in this blog, I am talking mostly to confident creators.  I am sure I am writing about confident creators.  I aim to pass on ideas and information that will be useful to creators, even if they are not confident yet.   That latter group are the ones these authors call the held back.
