New Learning of Adults in the Information and Knowledge Society
Wolfgang Schinagl (Economic Chamber of Styria, Austria)
Abstract: New Learning in analogy to New Economy means a new paradigm of learning. Old Learning was learning with a continuous learning history in mind. New Learning means, that the continuity of a learning history is stored in a computer memory and can be quickly accessed. The external storage generates a better and more precise continuity of individual historical learning experiences and shifts the focus of cognitive energy to cognitive creativity. If knowledge is managable as the new discipline knowledge management offers, this new approach will make sense.
Keywords: cognitive creativity, eLearning, knowledge management, new learning, self learning
