Why are new learning approaches being developed? Learning itself has not changed fundamentally. From birth onwards, learning is a natural process for us, based on curiosity. According to a study, by 2025, 50% of the world’s workforce will have a different job to what they do now. In addition, due to the baby boomer generation going into retirement, we will have a shortage of 3 million workers within the next few years. For this reason, we need learning systems that adapt quickly to new circumstances and enable contextual learning.
