What will the shape of future learning look like? How are we changing learning to meet our new demands? How is learning changing us?
Donald Clark  has 30 years experience in online learning, games, simulations, social media and mobile learning projects and designed, delivered and advised on online learning for many global, public and private organisations. He is an evangelist for the use of technology in learning and has won many design awards, including the first 'Outstanding Achievement in E-learning Award'.
Donald believes that media sharing, social media, Wikipedia, games, open source etc. are ground breaking shifts in the way we learn, but unfortunately, they're not matched by the way we teach. The growing gap between teaching practice and learning practice is acute and growing. Institutional teaching, especially in Universities is hanging on to the pedagogic fossil that is the lecture. The true driver for positive, pedagogic change is the internet (source: youtube) -- INTERESTING.
