Let’s start with the opportunities, because I think those two letters, AI are terribly important. Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple – everyone’s bought into the idea that AI will be the underlying technology that will make things work in the future.
As a learner you use AI all the time, when you search on Google, nothing but AI. Social learning on Facebook and Twitter is AI-driven on your timeline. Buying a book on Amazon? You’re nudged by AI. Watch Netflix? It’s AI-driven.
So surely we learning people have something to learn from this? This will be the future, but where’s the learning world? It’s stuck in the world of LMS’s, content, text, graphic, multiple choice questions, a bit of gamification. This is the old paradigm.
