Smart learning conjures up a picture of the self-determined nomadic learner (Alexander, 2004) engaged in nomadic thought (Deleuze & Guattari, 2004), caught up in the flows and eddies that connect to and reach beyond just-in-time formal education. An education today must prepare the student to engage with the world purposefully across lifewide spaces. In the era of BYOD, learning spans formal and non-formal spaces to accommodate deliberative, reactive, incidental and connective motivations. Learning space becomes fluid as we instinctively make arrangements to meet, check and correct our notes and data, seek help and learning friendship and live our learning in sync with our working by crossing boundaries that were previously impermeable and invisible to education (Brown et al., 1989). Now it seems any space is navigable and this opens a new horizon for the nomadic hybrid learner.
