  • Learning 2.0 is the idea that blossomed from my thoughts and in developing the program I sought to remove the knowledge expert from the front of the class equation and capitalize on the two most important factors of any learning environment. That being have engaged participates ( notice these are not students, they’re participants who are engaged in their own learning) and motivation. Everyone needs some type of motivation to learn. So with the instructor removed from the classroom and the notion that participates would be engaged in charge of their own learning, I came up with some goals and fundamentals for this new program.
