Innovative Approaches for Learning and Knowledge Sharing
With the shift towards a knowledge society, changing working conditions and the continuous evolution of information and communication technologies, p- ples’ knowledge and skills need continuous development. Technology-enhanced learning is one of the strategic objectives of the EU/IST Work Program, with the goal of “improving the e?ciency and cost-e?ectiveness of learning, for - dividuals and organizations, independent of time, place and pace.” Innovative infrastructures, methods and approaches are needed to reach this goal, and will facilitatetransfer andsharingof knowledgebetweenindividuals and inorgani- tions.Fore-learning,asine-commerceande-business,systemicchangeswrought by emerging technologies are also changing the relationships between consu- tion and production—in this case of knowledge—as what many call ‘Web 2.0’ becomesmoreinteractiveanduser-generatedcontentbecomes morewidespread. EC-TEL 2006, the First European Conference on Technology-Enhanced Learning, provided a unique forum for all research related to technolo- enhanced learning in Europe and world-wide, as well as its interactions with knowledge management, business processes and work environments, through specializedworkshopsandthe mainconference.Additionally,EC-TEL2006p- vided unique networking possibilities for participating researchers throughout the week and included project meetings and discussions for EU/IST projects fundedwithinthesixthframeworkprogramundertheactionlineof“Technology- Enhanced Learning and Access to Cultural Heritage.” EC-TEL2006wasorganizedbytheProfessionalLearningCluster(PRO-LC).
