  Learning Communities and Networks

The rise of a knowledge economy and society challenges our current views on education and learning: while the late 20 th century focused on initial and continuing education as an independent activity, the 21st century demands a much more organic approach to learning. Beyond being an integral part of our everyday activities (I work, therefore I learn), we start to realise that individual, organisational and community learning are essential elements in the development of learning territories.

The main themes for Learning Communities and Networks 2009 are:

  • C1 ― Social computing for community based learning
  • C2 ― Social computing for organisational learning
  • C3 ― Social computing for learning regions and cities
  • C4 ― Social computing for collective action
  • C5 ― Social computing for professional bodies
