Modernizing Learning

September 11, 2019

The Department of Defense’s Advanced Distribution Learning (ADL) Initiative recently released its latest eBook, Modernizing Learning.

Modernizing Learning, now available for FREE download in ePub format, emphasizes a “future learning ecosystem,” defined as a transformation from traditional learning practices to “curated lifelong learning tailored to individuals and delivered across diverse locations, media and period of time.” In other words, if you’re planning to upgrade your learning modules to the 21st century, Modernizing Learning provides a blueprint for connecting learning experiences across time and space for academia, K–12, and more.

This comprehensive resource explores data security, learner privacy, analytics and visualization as well as other technological capabilities related to social networking, data sharing, and data collection in a learning ecosystem. The book also covers instructional strategies for the future, competency-based learning, social learning and self-regulated learning.

With competing and constantly changing demands, limited resources and a need for integration across systems, learning professionals have recognized a need for a governance strategy for an ecosystem. This book discusses how to develop a governing structure for a learning ecosystem, how to conduct strategic planning, and what changes in culture are needed to modernize learning for the future.
