Authors Don Tapscott and Anthony Williams do a good job outlining how the World Wide Web moved from its first stage as a static "digital newspaper," to its new incarnation (Web 2.0) as a "shared canvas." This transformation has a massive impact on how knowledge is created and shared, and how innovation and value creation now happens. What do these trends mean for learning?

    SCC is based on the idea that people learn best via direct experience (aka "learning by doing"), and that we should provide learners with realistic scenarios and projects that can facilitate such experiential learning. Everyone needs a touchstone. Something or someone you turn to when trying to determine what is authentic, what is a good decision, what is the right thing to do. With regard to how people learn, a question I grapple with every day, Roger Schank is my touchstone. Likewise, they may learn about certain ethical principles by participating in a mock legal trial.

The training / learning model embraced by most organizations can be characterized as top-town, centre-to-periphery, and decidedly one-way.
