VISIR Network

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Accoridng to the email, "The VISIR project – Vision, Scenarios, Insights and Recommendations – is the initiative of seven European networks, one research centre and one University involved in the open, distance and e-learning field. It aims to develop a shared vision on how ICT may help making lifelong learning a reality." They have launched their second survey.  You can download the 1st Consultation Executive Summary and the full 1st Consultation Paper. Interestingly, the first survey captured a sentiment to look more at education as it fits into wider society, looking at cultural and social-economic factors, rather than focusing effort and expense on institutional change. "A significant focus can be observed on overall learning in society as the real patrimony on which to invest (by leveraging ICT potential) as opposed to institutional learning systems, reflecting to a need to enlarge the perspective out of the borders of education systems." Exactly the right approach, in my view.
