I predict (but its in my best interests to;) an increased emphasis on brain-based learning, where the finidngs of neuroscience and played with in the classroom and online. From these I hope arise more contemporary learning theories/taxonomies. Too many of the ones wheeled out (blooms, gagne and so on) are old and industrial age, not post.
