VISIR : Vision, Scenarios, Insights and Recommendations on how ICT may help making lifelong learning a reality for all
VISIR – The use of ICT for learning in Europe is gaining ground, but to uncap its potential as a driver of change for our economies and societies, we need to move from fragmentation and piloting to effective systematic adoption. To address this need, seven European networks and two research centres, with the support of the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission, have joined forces and are working to address three major gaps: the “understanding gap”, the “networking gap”, and the “mainstreaming gap” of ICT for learning in Europe. The project is working to provide a long-term vision on the contribution of ICT for transforming education and training systems in line with the needs of the future European knowledge society, to guarantee stakeholders’ involvement and engagement in the development and validation of such a vision through four cross-sectoral stakeholders consultations, to facilitate the emergence of grassroots ICT-for learning innovation by identifying and mainstreaming at least 100 successful micro-innovation practices, to mainstream innovation by promoting these “practices that work” both towards E&T policy makers and towards a number of ICT-for-learning communities, to provide recommendations and guidelines for policy and practice on how to contribute to closing the gaps that hinder the meaningful exploitation of ICT in European Lifelong Learning.
