Learning in 3D Nugget #2

Twitter Quote:
“The web is evolving into a pervasive ecosystem whose central purpose is to facilitate collective action, learning, and growth.” p.5

Book Paragraph:
We are witnessing the acceleration of the co-evolution of society and technology. In a socio-technical system like the one we are in, information is the currency, individuals are the transport mechanism, interaction is the transfer mechanism, and insight is the value-added outcome. Given this context, we can begin to conceive of the web’s own evolution as a pervasive and expanding ecosystem whose central purpose is to facilitate collective action, learning, and growth. In this evolutionary process, it is natural that the three-dimensional web will be a large part of society’s increasingly digital future. The societal, professional, and educational consequences of this emerging learning ecosystem are beginning to take shape on a large scale.
