Evolving Learning Landscape" Current thinking
about 21st century skills, and the learning experiences that support their development, are essential starting points for capacity building. A list of the workforce skills presented by Davies, et al (2011, pp. 8-12) include:" • Sense-making • Social intelligence • Novel and adaptive thinking • Cross-cultural competency • Computational thinking • New-media literacy • Transdisciplinarity • Design mindset • Cognitive load management • Virtual collaboration http://www.iftf.org/our-work/global-landscape/work/future-work-skills-2020/ !

“Skills have become the global
currency of 21st- century economies” (OECD, 2012, p. 10). In this context, skills are defined as the combination of knowledge, attributes and competencies that can be learned and that allow an individual to successfully perform a task. These skills can be built upon through continuous learning.The sum of the skills available to any given economy forms the human capital of the country.” OECD 2012, Better skills, better jobs, better lives: a strategic approach to skills policies, OECD Publishing, viewed 14 July 2012, http://dx.doi.org/10.1787/9789264177338-en

The urgent dimensions of learning!
“The mechanisms for engaging with information and processes of learning in the acquisition of new knowledge has become a deeper process of individual and collaborative learning activities, problem solving and artefact development, occurring through an integration of face-to-face and online interactions within a community, involving absorption, integration and systemisation of the information received by the receiver in their own pre- existing cognitive structure, which are the result of personal experience, and earlier knowledge transactions”.

Our students, voracious social media
users, may be hiding some of their story, faking perfection through their perfect-only ﬁnal product. But, there is no “faking out” innovative educators – their teachers. Teachers know that the process of getting there is less than a perfect road and where the learning happens. The imperfect road becomes the strength of the lesson. !

Microlearning: hungry for knowledge nuggets!
Microlearning ticks all the teaching boxes: bite-sized nuggets of content are easy to digest, understand and remember. Often mobile-friendly, visual and sharable, the short bursts of information leave you sufﬁciently satisﬁed and likely to come back for more.! At the BI Norwegian School of Business, through a number of pilot programmes, they have been adapting fragmented content to mobile devices, ﬁnding that the right mix of mobile learning makes courses more engaging and also helps part-time students stay up- to-date.! http://www.online-educa.com/OEB_Newsportal/microlearning-hungry-for-knowledge-nuggets/ !
