The advent of new technologies has enabled learners of all ages to engage in education and training. Learning is now perceived as 'lifelong' as access to knowledge is opened up and is available in new forms. As a society how can we support learners at home, in educational institutions and in the workplace? What are the issues and challenges we face as educators?
