New Learning

Mary Kalantzis, Bill Cope
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Education is in a moment of transition. The idea of ‘New Learning’ contrasts what education has been like in the past with the changes we are experiencing today, and offers an imaginative view of the possible features of learning environments in the near future. New Learning describes changes in the social significance of education, the institutional locations, tools and outcomes of learning, a changing balance of agency between teacher and learner, and an awareness of differences between learners. To juggle all these relations is the challenge for the new teaching professional.
