In our advanced information society, we are now able to consume information anytime and anywhere via mobile phones and other digital devices. But can one learn by merely consuming information? Production and exchange of information today are an industry, and education, for its part, has become more and more industrialized in a process that locks knowledge and skills within an efficiency-driven school systems. But Knowledge and skills should be a common good that is openly accessible and free to all for the progress of society. So what exactly are we learning for? Are today’s universities good learning spaces? What defines a learning space?
