Paper by Elina Jokisalo and Antoni Riu looking at informal learning and how it could use tools of the web 2.0



Paper by Neil Selwyn presented at the OECD meeting on these issues. Very illustrative of present international discussions on these issues.



This research paper, presented by .......... at the OECD, discusses the validity of using informal learning, through the use of web 2.0 tools, to create the environment of informal learning.

The paper is linked to current OECD work in this area.

An important issue to follow for those interested in the introduction in education 2.0 of new web 2.073.0 tools such as GNOSS.



´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.

Este informe de 34 páginas aborda en que medida las herramientas 2.0 pueden aplicarse al ámbito universitario, cuales son los miedos y resistencias al cambio, como se relaciona la educación con la aparición de redes sociales, que se puede esperar en el futuro.

El informe ha sido elaborado por el The Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP)

The Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP)  is the United Kingdom's Economic and Social Research Council's largest investment in education research. It was initiated in 2000 and is expected to end in 2011. The programme incorporates 700 researchers in 70 projects, which cover all education sectors - from Early Years to Higher Education and Workplace Learning. The TLRP researchers work closely in partnership with practitioners to ensure the application of findings to policy and practice.

During the project an interest emerged in Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL). It began with a call for proposals in 2006, additional funding having been made available by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. The TEL research strand is now the main focus of the TLRP.

The TLRP-TEL programme is based at London Knowledge Lab. The generic Teaching and Learning Research programme was based at the Institute of Education, University of London.



Informe del proyecto SemTech desarrollado por el JICS.

This report presents and discusses the findings of the SemTech (Semantic Technologies for Learning
and Teaching) project that was funded by JISC and commenced its activities in September 2008.
SemTech addressed the following questions:
• What are semantic technologies?
• Which tools that make use of semantic technologies are, or could be, relevant to education?
• What is the actual use of semantic tools and services in UK HE and FE?
• What is the value of such tools in the context of learning, teaching and support?
• How do we envisage the adoption of semantic tools in higher education in the future?

Semantic technologies appear to hold the promise of significantly enhancing formal and informal learning but issues such as building ontology consensus, the logistics of annotating large volumes of learning content and the underpinning pedagogy have been frequently questioned. However, recent developments in Web 2.0 tools and services for teaching and learning show that these concerns may be successfully addressed and benefit HE/FE, informal learning and exploratory learning. This project sought to identify and quantify these benefits and outline a roadmap for semantic technologies adoption in these contexts.
