The future of learning...

The Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS), as part of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC), has just published a report about: The Future of Learning: Preparing for Change.
It is a great resource that envisages the future of learning and the fundamental transformation of education and learning which will need new skills and competencies. It illustrates a vision that personalization, collaboration and informalization (informal learning) will be at the core of learning in the future. It emphasizes the potential of technology very crucial in this process. 
It is then presenting the persona of the future learners. I found it very interesting and worth reading.
