Cover of Future of Learning Report

The Future of Learning: Preparing for Change is the most recent JRC report (edited by Christine Redecker and Yves Punie) which tries to identify, understand and visualise major changes to learning in the future. The overall vision is that personalisation, collaboration and informalisation (informal learning) are at the core of learning in the future. These terms are not new in education and training but will have to become the central guiding principle for organising learning and teaching in the future.
