Conference paper
Part of the IFIP International Federation for Information Processing book series (IFIPAICT, volume 161)


The introduction of ICTs is causing considerable tension between systems like those of education, health and democracy and what is happening outside those systems. This tension has to be resolved. Therefore educational goals need to be redefined. In redefining the goals of education changes need to be directly related to competencies and how the acquisition of these competencies can be integrated into the curriculum and the evaluation system. This project aims are: creation of new pedagogical strategies; creation of international communities around these new strategies in higher education and upper secondary education; creation of new principles and methods; creation of knowledge building and exchange processes.

Key words

higher education international communities knowledge building knowledge exchange pedagogical strategies redefinition of education upper-secondary education
