6 emerging cyberlearning areas

As the way students learn becomes more important, research is yielding promising trends

Six emerging design themes are impacting cyberlearning, or the future of learning with technology, according to a new report.

Cyberlearning researchers investigate this learning future, and while many cyberlearning projects are in initial stages and don’t aim to produce market-ready products, they do yield early results with proof-of-concept designs or theoretical insights.

Those researchers also believe they can explore how people learn by designing innovative technologies that draw from findings from the learning sciences and experimenting with those designs in real-world settings.

The report, which summarizes emerging cyberlearning areas and focuses on a handful of guiding questions, is organized by The Center for Innovative Research in Cyberlearning (CIRCL) and is co-authored by 22 members of the U.S. cyberlearning community.
