Learning in the Digital Age (DAL)

Publish date:

This point of view defines “what” is learning in the digital age. It is based on business and academic literature, industry best practices, and current trends in the fields of business, technology, neuroscience, higher education and workplace learning.

This paper has been developed by Capgemini to support discussions among learning and HR professionals. It will be iterated based on the outcomes of these debates. It also integrates the results of pilot programs which Capgemini University and members of the EFMD Special Interest Group on Digital Age Learning are currently implementing. This paper only focuses on what is learning in the digital age. It will be complemented with a Digital Age Learning Framework which will recommend “how” learning in the digital age can be implemented.

The document first lays out the context of learning in the digital age, analyzing the learning-related impacts that the digital age has on society, businesses, the individuals and the digital age learner. It then looks at the evolution of learning theories within that context. Finally, it defines learning in the digital age with its set of characteristics.
