Infrastructure for future network learning

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Information and communication technology is going to change how, what, who, when, where and why we learn. Unfortunately, we are still uncertain the details how these impacts will bring to future education. Only one thing we are certain: there will be numerous network learning models emerging in the near future. This talk discuss some main ideas of a Grand Project for Excellence: “Learning technology: social learning and its application, from Taiwan to the World”, recently launched in Taiwan. Around forty professors across Taiwan are involved in the project. The project actually induces an infrastructure of future network learning from several perspectives: concept, theory, learning model design, and system architecture. This infrastructure provides us an integrated view of how seemingly diversified technologies or concepts converge. For example, within this infrastructure, the roles and implications of terms such as handheld computers, wireless and mobile communication, broadband network, project-based learning, intelligent educational agents in the future network learning can be more intelligible.
