"Mapping Major Changes to Education and Training in 2025" elaborado por el Instituto de Estudios de Prospectiva Tecnológica (IPTS) y el Joint Research Centre de la Comisión Europea, es el resultado de un ejercicio de prospectiva sobre la educación y la formación en el horizonte 2025 con el que se pretendía identificar los principales cambios susceptibles de transformar la educación y la formación. Un total de trece  expertos (en diferentes materias) han participado en este estudio prospectivo.

El futuro mapa de cambios identificado puede dividirse en 12 temáticas, analizando tanto cambios tecnológicos, como la globalización o cambios en conceptos pedagógicos. Entre los cambios previsibles de mayor importancia, destacan; un aprendizaje más orientado a la persona formada, más flexible y personalizado; la integración del aprendizaje en la vida y en el trabajo, y el desarrollo e implementación conceptos pedagógicos innovadores


This report presents the findings of a structured and targeted expert consultation exercise which aimed to identify, cluster and rate the main changes in education and training expected to occur over the course of the next 20 years. The exercise employed the group concept mapping methodology to generate, sort and rate more than 200 statements by a group of 13 experts.
The emerging map of future changes to education and training can be divided into a set of 12 thematic clusters, ranging from technological changes over globalisation to changing pedagogical concepts. Anticipated changes that rate particularly high in importance according to experts include learner-centred, flexible and personalised approaches to learning; the integration of learning into life and work; and the development and implementation of innovative pedagogical concepts. When comparing the cluster ratings on importance and feasibility, it becomes clear that, while experts are optimistic concerning the development of technology enhanced learning opportunities, scepticism prevails concerning the feasibility of implementing learner-centred approaches in formal education and, in general, the ability of formal education systems and institutions to keep pace with change and become more flexible and dynamic.

´Learning in Informal Online Networks and Communities'  es un informe del Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) sobre aprendizaje informal en comunidades y redes on line publicado en febrero de 2010.


In 2008, as part of its policy support for DG Education and Culture, IPTS launched a study to explore the innovative social and pedagogical approaches to learning that are emerging in new ICT-enabled collaborative settings. This is the final report on the project. Lifelong learning plays a crucial role in society today as jobs, and the skills they require, are changing. Recent technological and social developments in online settings have the potential to support lifelong learning in new ways. Online collaborative spaces can support both intentional and non-intentional learning in new ways through various forms of participation. These online platforms, networks and communities support learning all the key competences for lifelong learning, including new transversal skills and personal growth in a social context. However, ensuring digital fluency and self-regulated learning skills for all becomes a crucial challenge and enabler for lifelong learning. Furthermore, individuals need to be prepared for and interested in learning. Communities can encourage their members to participate and learn with a sociable, openly-managed and developing culture. The report argues that online networks and communities can contribute to all the major European Education and Training policy objectives, i.e. modernising educational institutions to support the lifelong learning continuum with new opportunities for equity, quality and efficiency, and learning key competences and transversal skills. However, a new learner-centred approach for lifelong learning by learners, education providers and employers is needed. All education stakeholders should engage in developing lifelong learning opportunities through collaboration and new partnerships.
