Abstract

During the last few years educators have witnessed two distinct and disruptive developments. New genres of social engagement have taken off with the introduction of net-enabled smart phones (2007) and pads (2010). Online teaching and learning is being transformed by a plethora of massive open online courses (MOOCs) since 2012. Based on experiental evidence of new behavioral patterns, this paper argues that these developments put libraries and learning centers at a crossroads. They must reinvent themselves to cater for a new and radically different grammar of schooling or experience decline.
