I am of the opinion that there are various pressures, not all currently identified (at least by me), on our conception of knowledge to change. Here are some obvious ones:
- The demands of business and the need for new skills in the workplace (but what is driving organizational change?)
- The pressure on teachers and schools by learners who have different skillsets, interests and motivations than previous generations (but where do these come from – the media?)
- The ‘flattening world’ due to new technologies?
