Crossing Boundaries for Learning – through Technology and Human Efforts

June 30, 2014
Crossing Boundaries for Learning – through Technology and Human Efforts
Edited by Hannele Niemi, Jari Multisilta and Erika Löfström
This newly published book is based on selected papers presented at the
2013 annual conference of the Teacher Education Policy in Europe
(TEPE) network at the University of Helsinki.
The book presents how:
• Many prior boundaries between formal and non-formal learning sites
are in the process of breaking down.
• Learning spaces are becoming more overlapping, seamless, joined, and
• Technology creates new practices in schools. Technology can be used
to facilitate personalized learning and inclusion in education, as
well as in partnerships between schools, homes, and the wider community.
• Learning continues throughout life, and a school’s task is to
provide learners with the skills and competences with which they can
continue their learning in different phases of their lives.
• Technology can be an important tool, but without other educationally
supportive structures and equal opportunities for a good education,
technology alone cannot solve problems or provide the necessary skills
for the future.
