Abstract: This paper presents a perspective emphasising Meta learning (ML) as the most significant and pertinent feature for promoting a democratic, collaborative eLearning-to-Learn (eL2L) phenomenon in a global context. Through attempting to understand and clarify the powers of pedagogical design of global networked e Learning based on Learning-to-Learn (L2L), it makes a plea for L2L in a dialogic global learning context, offering a vision of global democratic citizens able to engage in critical dialogue with fellow learners.

Keywords: metalearning; learning-to-learn; L2L; pedagogical design; e-pedagogy; democratic e-learning; global e-learning; e-ethos; online learning; collaborative learning; web based communities; virtual communities.
