Formal learning used to involve sitting attentively in a lecture hall or classroom as close to the front as one could get, and listening to the professor, unlike learners of today. Today, it is the learner who seeks the learning opportunity, and connects these bits of learning into cognitively logical sequences, expanding personal learning experiences beyond the formal classroom. Professors are now "guiders" suggesting direction, ideas, and creating personal learning environments for each learner, none exactly alike. New tools such as social networking, social bookmarking blogging, and Wikis, have changed our learning landscape. The new key is in connections. Web 2.0 is connecting the learners by providing two-way communication, no longer one-way Internet-to-searcher or the traditional sage-on-the-stage. Social connections, connecting teachers to learners, experts to novices, machine to machine without language, geographic limitations have expanded our learning globally
