Reflections on Collaborative and Networked Learning
Ladies and Gentlemen, this conference is about Collaborative and Networked Learning. In pursuing this debate, you are in fact considering, on the one hand, the threats to a system of education that go back to some thousand years and, on the other, the challenges that are emerging to the forefront of human development. Those of us in the business of providing training and educational services to our nations, have a central role to play in confronting these challenges. And, more importantly, we can also benefit from them. If we wish to benefit, then we must have the foresight, courage and determination to discard a few old lenses.
