Technological change is a pervasive force in society.
However, the benefits of new technology are not evenly spread. At the moment, people still see technology as a positive force but that could change quickly. To ensure we capture the benefits to the max there needs to be a series of smart public policy interventions. Below we map out the ‘creative tribes’ of technological change, the attitudes and behaviours that condition our relationship to new technologies and recommended policy responses necessary to ensure all can benefit from an emerging spontaneous shared learning economy. The three tribes - The ‘confident creators’ who are adept at using new technology to develop their knowledge, creativity and social capital. . - The ‘held back’ not only see the benefits of new technology but they are using it to learn.
. - Finally, there are the ‘safety firsters’. (There are two further groups - the 'comfortable' and 'connected' retired (or near-retired also in reality). Seven charts 1. 2. 3.

Adult Education Adult Education in Canada is both a field of practice and (since the 1960s) a field of study. According to UNESCO, as a field of practice adult education denotes the entire body of organized educational processes, whatever the content, level or method, whether formal or informal, and whether the processes prolong or replace initial education in schools, colleges, universities or apprenticeship systems. The term "adult" usually means someone beyond the legal school-leaving age. Other than that, there is no upper age limit for learning.
Adult education as a field of study was originally interdisciplinary, borrowing from psychology, sociology, history and philosophy.

Expert interview What is the history of constructivism, and how has it changed over time? What are some critical perspectives? A journey into Constructivism. Trivial constructivismRadical constructivismSocial constructivismCultural constructivismCritical constructivismConstructionism Introduction During the past three months, I’ve been learning about constructivism by reading scholarly texts, discussing them with my class and my friends, journal keeping and personal reflection.
Through this interesting time, I feel my understanding has grown considerably and have already proved useful.
