Learners and the Learned

While doing research for something totally unrelated, I came across this wonderful quote by Eric Hoffer.1

In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.

In this time of drastic change, are we helping our students to become learners?

Or are we training them to be learned, for a world that’s gone and never coming back?
