When enormous amounts of information are available at our fingertips, how do we learn the things we need to know?

In a world overflowing with information, how can we adapt our learning methods to thrive? Dave Cormier, a pioneering figure in digital education, presents a thought-provoking manifesto in Learning in a Time of Abundance. A leading voice in digital learning, Cormier offers a fresh perspective on how we can face the uncertainty of a world where our challenges don't have clear answers amid an overwhelming digital landscape.

Measuring knowledge through memorization and grades made more sense in a world where information was hard to come by. Cormier explores the cultural and teaching changes necessary to adapt in the digital age while emphasizing the importance of understanding how to navigate the vast sea of information we encounter every day, from answering questions like "Should my child play sports that often lead to concussions?" to "How should I chime in on that Facebook conversation on gender identity?" Delving into the history of traditional learning, Cormier addresses the pressing question of how we must transform our learning approaches to thrive in an era of endless information and complex decision making.

This book is a must-read for those seeking guidance on how to adapt when we are overwhelmed by information overload. Whether it's understanding social media influences on children or making impactful decisions as citizens, Cormier empowers readers in the digital age to find their humility, trust effectively, and learn to apply their values in complex situations.

Dave Cormier (ONTARIO, CA) is a learning specialist at the University of Windsor. He is credited with coining the term MOOCs in 2008 to describe the emerging massive open online courses.
