Entrepreneurial Learning 2.0 Navigating the Coming Disruption in How We Learn To Innovate

An interesting visual from a talk given by Dr. Alex Bruton looking at learners’ roles and teachers’ roles and how it relates to self-directedness. This particular part of the talk can be found at 50:20 of the video.

From the Video’s Abstract:

Imagine graduating from college or university today. Sure, you’d have free access to useful information like no generation before yours has ever had, and all the tools you could dream of for producing and sharing information as readily as it can be consumed. No, you may never need to pay for a long distance call, a travel agent, an encyclopedia or a web developer. And yes, before too long the businesses you start would be able to house and scale all of their data and software in the cloud, at next to no cost.
But as enabling as all this might be, it wouldn’t guarantee your success (or the success of the companies at which you would work) and could even be a disadvantage if you (or your bosses) have grown up learning in a traditional education system.
