Support for a learning society

Support for a Learning Society

Not surprisingly, connected teaching quickly moves beyond the walls of the school, immersing all learners in a learning society. The concept of a learning society is not a vision for the future: Examples already exist.

Starting in 2000, a research team in Taiwan developed a network of websites called EduCity that breaks downs the walls of the school to involve broader communities in supporting learning (Chan et al., 2001). As the lead innovator, Tak Wai Chan, describes it, EduCity comprises a hierarchy of communities that have reached more than 1.5 million students and over 1,700 schools.
