Technology for continuous learning towards the knowledge society
by Piet Kommers
International Journal of Continuing Engineering Education and Life-Long Learning (IJCEELL), Vol. 13, No. 5/6, 2003

Abstract: This paper looks in-depth at the new strategies and tactics at the didactic level, in order to achieve learning progress, in order to contribute to the new generation's participation in the ''knowledge society''. The more specific effect of new ICT facilities is the catalytic one, not only in the continuous evolution of innovative teaching but also in the learning processes in traditional secondary education. Even more important are the ICT effects on contextual factors, such as the restructuring of classroom-based learning and its complement in home-based learning, vocational learning and most importantly the newly developing web-based learning networks and the subsequent web-based learning communities. The introduction of web-based communities for teachers is most likely.
