Technology is rapidly transforming the world and changing the way we learn. Although education is a deep-seated discipline compared to many others, it is now gaining a new shape nurtured by the efficiency, flexibility and convenience that technology brings.
Today’s forms of learning are not limited to a single model or just classroom activities. To meet the evolved learning needs of the new generation, there is an ongoing pursuit of creating collaborative and personalized learning environments.
At this point, a need for innovative learning methods is emerging and the structures transforming the learning environments are now needed more than ever. In order to produce the professionals for the future jobs we have not even considered until now, new learning environments suitable for the education paradigm of this new era emerge.
