The move from atoms to bits or “Move bits, not atoms” as Nicholas Negroponte described it in the 1990’s, taken together with the massive growth in social networks and the range of affordable social media, is driving a total revolution in learning.

Rapid uptake of tablet technology, cloud computing, together with declining broadband costs, all linked to a generation of “digital natives” (people who have interacting with digital technology from an early age), is leading to dramatic innovation in the field of learning. Much of this learning will be social in nature. Hence the next big disruption – the one that is gaining momentum in the education field at all levels.
