This paper looks at how the medical and media industries in Nigeria utilize technology for learning and change. The study shows that there increase in technology has lead to an increase in learning as skills are required to function new technologies. The study found that across the different sectors of medicine and media, non formal learning and in house trainings have been dominant mastering new technologies. However, the study also raises important issues about the extent to which Nigeria is technologically fit. Therefore, improved learning and change for different sectors in the country.

Learning for change is a purposeful action which is emotionally insinuated .Emotions are helped by logic and right reasoning to guide them to intended  positive change. In informal learning the student has already set targets which have not been manifested unlike in formal learning where by the instructor has to set up goals to benefit the student and meet the targets of the organization. In informal learning the learner has the outline of the plan or the theory he intends to use in mind unlike in formal learning.

Knowledge is the backbone of the modern world of economy today. Say for example, the role that information technology plays is adored in the business world today. It is such knowledge that has been developed to enhance change in respective fields as in for businesses.

“A firms ability to learn may be its only competitive advantage” (kelly, 2008) The more an organization learns her customers the more they are able to know their preferences and come up with better ideas that they put in practice to come up with better products that will satisfy their customers and in so doing, more efficient will be their services.  This will enhance their productivity in the economy thus an organization succeeds in most of its endeavors.

Learning can be divided into two branches according to (Continuing medical education:Learning and change: implications for continuing medical education, 1998)Self directed learning

“The first model, categorized to as the self directed curriculum, consists of three stages.

·         Stage 1–learning is directed towards understanding and estimating personal levels of need to learn in order to adopt a change in practice

·         Stage 2–energies are applied to learning the new competencies needed to practice differently

·         Stage 3–learning is organized around the problems of using new skills, altering the practice environment, or adapting the new way of practice to increase the goodness of fit.”

Self directed learning therefore focuses on three key issues which have been termed as stages of learning. First of all an individual needs to understand the case and the need to learn about it in order to synthesize the procedures to change. These procedures will include adopting new skills changing the normalcy of procedures to gain positivity. Understanding a case equals compiling a solution and will definitely bring change
