Developing the individual, the worker, the citizen: the aims of education re-visited in the information society: how can ICT help innovation ?

Abstract : This paper addresses the issue of how ICT are producing an impact on education and training and how they can become a powerful instrument for value-oriented innovation rather than an force strength contributing to the transformation of education into a commodity in the globalised economy. An analysis of present social trends – the “broader picture” – is followed by a review of the three essential aims of education – building the individual, the worker and the citizen – in the information society. The main forces that are affecting education and learning systems are than analysed and the likely future scenarios identified. The contribution of ICT to the Lifelong Learning agenda is than discussed and the emergence of learning communities analysed. Finally the main domains of change in education and training are explored and exemplified and some conclusive remarks are proposed on how policy can support value-oriented innovation.
