VIsion, Scenarios, Insights and Recommendations on how ICT may help making lifelong learning a reality for all
Start date: 01 Nov 2011,

The aim of the VISIR network is to contribute to the full exploitation of the potential of ICT to transform and innovate European lifelong learning and to equip European citizens with digital competence and other key transversal competencies for life and employability in Europe. The project will: 1. analyse the existing trends (including the identification of weak signals of change) on ICT for learning in Europe and draft a long terms vision on the contribution of ICT for transforming education and training systems in line with the needs of the future European knowledge society; 2. conduct four cross-sectoral open consultations among learners, practitioners and decision makers from the public and private sector (with at least 2000 participants) aiming at validating the vision developed and at enriching it with change and action scenarios; 3. identify at least 100 successful ICT-for-learning micro-innovation practices (cases studies identified, described and available for social tagging) and to catalogue them according to transversal issues such as IPR, quality standards, e-assessment and open educational resources; 4. facilitate exchange of ideas and concerns around these practices through the organisation of six transnational seminars connected to major conferences focusing on specific “sectors in change” of ICT-for-learning and through a web2.0 “online showcase"; 5. facilitate the mainstreaming of these practices both towards E&T policy makers and towards learning communities, through two mainstreaming international events, a Guide to scalability and mainstreaming of micro-innovation in ICT for learning; 6. provide research-grounded recommendations for policy making and for innovative practices large scale scalability and transferability. VISIR is put forward by seven European networks in the LLL field: the MENON network, EADL, EDEN, EFMD, ELIG, EICI, EFQUEL, supported by two renewed research institution such as Scienter and K.U. Leuven.
