What skills are needed for living and learning in today’s networked world? Which skills do educators need to facilitate others in learning these skills? How can their development be supported in and across different educational settings? And what roles can informal settings such as the library have in their development? These questions are the focus of the conference. We emphasize participatory skills, skills in reflexive opinion formation, and skills for integrated use of computers as crucial for coping in a networked world. Similarly, we analyze the skills involved in teaching for others’ learning within the educational system and in facilitating the learning of a participatory public in informal settings. We elaborate on how one can design for learning these skills through presentation of case studies and provide theoretical elucidations of the concepts of design for learning and networked learning.
