You will find plenty here about specific learning resources, but you will also find general perspectives on what it means to be a lifelong learner in a hyper-connected world, how to develop and improve learning habits, and how to actually get the most out of what you have learned (which is nearly always more than you realize!) in every day life. Naturally, you can also read more about Mission to Learn on the About page .

I received this year's Edge Question while in Damascus, shuttling messages from Jerusalem aimed at probing possibilities for peace. And I got to thinking about how my thinking on world peace and transnational violence has been shaped by the Internet, and how the advent of the Internet has framed my view of human history and destiny. I'm aware that I'm living on the cusp of perhaps the third great tipping point in human history, and that this is an awesome and lucky thing to experience. First, I imagine myself with a small band moving out of Africa into the Fertile Crescent around 60,000 years ago or so, when humans mastered language and began to conquer the globe. More than half a million years ago, the Neanderthal and human branches of evolution began to split from our common ancestor Homo erectus (or perhaps Homo ergaster ).

This week begins a series on how to help young people develop as ‘Reflective Learners’ It is becoming widely appreciated that, in current times: the knowledge base in society is increasing rapidly, and now doubles every 373 days – teaching knowledge is an anachronism; a wider range of the population process and generate knowledge – information is not the possession of a few ‘experts’; employment prospects relate more to the ability to enhance and transfer learning – the accumulation of qualifications is not enough; the landscape of learning is much wider and richer, involving multiple contexts, modes and sources – learning is no longer the province of special institutions: it is a way of being. In such a context, our understanding of ‘effective learning’ is developing: of the four items defining ‘effective learning’ in the attached table , the first three could be found in reviews of effective classroom learning half a century ago.
