Approaching a New Normal in education?

Peter Hinssen (2010) created the idea of approaching a "New Normal" at the example of societal processes in a digital world. Following this idea, we (Anders Norberg and Isa Jahnke) question whether higher education and schools do also approach a new normality in some years or not. Does education just stuck on traditional models although the world around us is changing? What does higher education look in 2030? You are invited to disagree.

We discuss this vision in our paper entitled, Isa Jahnke & Anders Norberg (2013), "Digital Didactcs - Scaffolding a New Normality in Learning"
