School learning and education in the XXI Century: Connections between learning experiences inside and outside the school

Cartel Jornadas BLEOver the past few decades, there have been significant changes in the role of learning in peoples’ lives as well as many of the parameters involved in human learning: where, when, how, with whom, what, why and for what we learn. These changes force us to revise our understanding of the learning processes and pose unprecedented challenges to the education systems which were built on an ecology of learning that finds itself further and further from reality.

In the last few years, largely as a result of the development of new mobile technologies and wireless networks, new activity contexts have appeared that offer more opportunities and resources for children and youth to learn. At the same time, the potential of the traditional settings as sources of learning has increased considerably. The everyday and extracurricular activities in which children and adolescents participate, as well as the learning experiences involved, are becoming more numerous and more significant. These activities enable them to further their knowledge and to develop a wide variety of learning competences of a different nature.

This conference was aimed at teachers, researchers and other education professionals, with the purpose providing and promoting a place for the exchange of ideas and joint reflection on the learning processes in this new scenario. A scenario where learning is no longer associated with a single type of activity context – traditionally within the formal education institutions – but a result of the whole set of learning experiences taking place in the various activity contexts through which we circulate.
