Social media and mobile platforms allow us to become “knowmadic” learners.
Knowmadic in the sense of wandering from resource to resource that is freely available or found after some digging, bartering, or paying.
Like nomads, such learners travel light and are mobile. They go where opportunities are rich and are led less by destination and more by direction.
Unlike the notion of a nomad, knowmadic learners are not impoverished, backward, or otherwise lacking. Such learners are driven to learn simply because they are mad about knowing and exploring.
