The Institute for the Future (IFTF) came up with the notion of “Learning Flows” in a study back in 2013. I think it’s more relevant than ever.
“New technologies, work patterns, and practices are disrupting how we learn, where we learn, and what we need to learn. The definitions of teacher and student are becoming fluid, and education itself is moving out of episodic experiences in traditional institutions and their classrooms, into learning flows that course through our daily lives. People of all ages dip in and out of these flows, engaging in continuous learning channels that are contextually relevant and always available.” (IFTF)
You’ll find more guidelines to understand the concept and also research yourself here.
