The classical teaching-learning environments have dramatically changed, which is marked by the buzzword of atypical modes of learning. The changed learning environment related to these modes of learning can be characterized by the powerful support of ICT. In our present fast-transforming world the new layers of the information society are forming in the environment of the most uptodate tools, consequently these layers can be called digital natives. They are familiar with IPTV, intelligent mobile phones and homes, 3D TV, IPv6 network, thin client terminals, social networks (facebook, twitter, hi5, linkedln) and the web 3.0 protocolls. The paper gives an insight into the world of new learning theories characterized by technical integration, networking, realizing knowledge construction instead of knowledge transfer. The author focuses ont he connectivist characteristics based ont he most prevailing technology-based learning as a consequence of his practical experience acquired in higher education, where learning occurs in a social environment by means of the interactions (cooperation, collaboration) of networked learning communities.
