A key theme of Chapter III was the need to be able to seek out information and resources for oneself. Learners require this ability whether working in formal education (especially if engaged in project- or inquiry-based learning) or as autonomous learners outside any formal educational context. However, teachers and learning designers are themselves learners. They also need to be able to find information and resources to help them teach and design the learning resources, activities, and experiences of others.
