I’ve rapidly evolved the Learning Transformation Map i created last month: this time separating out ‘Strategic Imperatives’ from ‘Skills and Techniques’. I should stress that this is still very early stage work, and the differentiation is reasonably rough, and reasonably incomplete. My other caveat is that this is not intended to be a map of the whole landscape: it’s a view of the aspects i consider most significant today.
Probably predictably there are several key areas of focus: emergent technologies (but with a focus on diversified ecosystems and the disruption of trawling and analytic tools), learning science (with concurrent focus on overcoming dogma and unlocking potential), and social collaboration (specifically the evolution of knowledge, mechanisms of ‘sense making’, and an appreciation of how meaning is created – or co-created – at local, tacit, tribal levels – and how we take that to scale. So it’s a bit of an odd fish, ranging from deep tech and deep theory into the rather prosaic questions of deployment at scale, in the context of a global pandemic.
As a side note, i’ve not hand illustrated the lettering, as i normally do, as it’s dense and my handwriting is not up to it! Also this lets me iterate it more easily.
