Technology enabled learning network holds discussion forum

June 21, 2002

Brussels, 20 June 2002

PROMETEUS, a European network dedicated to identifying and dissemination knowledge and best practice in the field of technology enabled learning, will be holding a discussion forum in Paris on 29 to 30 September 2002.

Established four years ago with the support of the European Commission, PROMETEUS now has 450 members in 31 countries.

The discussion forum, the largest of its kind, will see an exchange of views on how technology can support and improve lifelong learning and, in particular, on primary, secondary and higher education as well as vocational and professional training. It aims to bridge the gap between research results and the actual use of learning technologies.

Specifically, the conference will address the following topics:
- the impact of new learning technologies on pupils, teachers and training methods;
- how new and emerging technologies can improve learning in universities;
- how new technologies will improve companies' competitiveness;
- how learning technologies can encourage and enable citizens to improve their skills and knowledge throughout their lifetime.
