Predictions for 2009

Via Stephen Downes.

eLearn Magazine compiled a list of predictions for 2009 by different TEL "experts". I like this one by Jay Cross.

Wrenching changes in business and society accompanying the global transition from the industrial age to the network economy will kill off much of the training and education programs as we have known it. In its place will arise a more natural approach to learning through collaboration and sharing. There are great times ahead, an era of fulfilling, bounteous learning unprecedented in human history. However, the journey to this promised land will be brutal and unforgiving for people and organizations who resist change and lobby for "back to the basics."
