Let's talk about LEARNING, not technology! What are some cultural shifts in our fast changing world, that have an impact on our own learning as educators? How can we start thinking differently about learning?

Thank you to Will Richardson for his thought provoking "3 Steps to Start Thinking Differently About Learning"( learning.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/10/25/guest-post-three-starting-points-for-thinking-differently-about-learning/) , Alec Couros for his 5 Answers to Challenges of Teaching & Learning in the 21st Century" (slideshare.net/courosa/taking-on-the-challenge-of-21st-century-teaching-learning) and Steve Hargadon for his thoughts of "You First", which makes so much sense.
