The interactions between tools and human minds are today so complex that it is very hard to try to draw a line between humans and technology. Neither is it a zero-sum game where the human brain is losing to the microchip, but as technology changes, people and what people do, are necessarily changed. This is just one of the reasons why work needs to be understood as learning. Work starts from problems and learning starts from questions. Work is creating value and learning is creating knowledge. Both work and learning require the same things: interaction, engagement and intelligent tools. With the help of our tools, we can create ways for very large numbers of people to become technologically augmented learners and thus potentially much more skilled in whatever they do. Much more than we have ever imagined possible.
