“Today’s students will be a knowledge producer, drawing together a range of available knowledge resources – instead of a knowledge consumer, fed just one source, the old textbook. They will work effectively in pairs or groups on collaborative knowledge projects, creating knowledge to be shared with peers. They will continue to learn beyond the classroom, using the social media to learn anywhere and anytime – a phenomenon called ‘ubiquitous learning’.”¹
Here in the first quarter of the 21st century, Education must consider and wrestle with the notion of learning anywhere, at anytime and ask ourselves: how do I fit into my students learning experiences?
