On October 18th, during the closing remarks of the European VVocational Skills Week, the Lifelong Learning Platform releases one of its greatest efforts: the 2019 position paper on 21st century learning environments.
Learning can happen anytime, anywhere, and the spaces where this learning occurs are incredibly and increasingly diverse. Education systems are undergoing a paradigm shift in the struggle to meet the needs of learners in a world that is rapidly changing from a technological, demographic, societal and environmental perspective. The rich diversity of learning environments, whether within the formal education system or beyond in the local community, workplace or civil society, is more valuable than ever to meet these rapidly evolving needs. Learning takes place across a combination of these environments, and this prompts the LLLPlatform to address the above-mentioned changes in a comprehensive and decisive position paper that we hope will inform decision-making in the coming years.
