Join our Nordic Future Learning Network -- a growing community
We have 50 Nordic experts signed in to our expanding Nordic Network, building on the core team of the Future Learning Lab. Please sign in to join. The label “Nordic” here refers to our exploring the future of a public service model of learning and education, where commercial interests play less of a role and classic visions of learning as societal enablement play a more key role. We do not want to see a world where new media giants define education and learning as the new snd highly concentrated knowledge industry after the news and entertainment media. Education and learning is a public good, and should be equally accessible to all .
The digital challenge
Education technology is no new thing, but stuff that´s happened since the mid 1990´s completely alter the eco system of learning, from kindergarten through higher education.
Human centered design
Learning is still fundamentally an aspect of human interaction and revelatory encounters with new knowledge. In a world marked by information overload, that experience is more crucial than ever.
Design based learning
This is why the Future Learning Lab team emphasizes the exploration of new learning spaces, new forms of collaboration and new understandings of education narratives.
The global perspective
Technology now enables world-widen networking in real time, learning and education opened up. Distance learning blends with new forms of social presence and collaboration.
