Scaling up Achieving a breakthrough in adult learning with technology
Digital Technologies are altering the way we work, trade, buy things, play, communicate, arrange holidays, pay taxes and have a social life, but so far – despite subsidy and encouragement – have made a disappointing impact on how we learn in formal contexts. Yet we live in a fast changing and increasingly competitive world, one where new skills and insights are essential. The new wave of computing should be mobilised to radically improve teaching, learning and access in vocational education and training. This report discusses the issues and barriers that impede our progress, and identifies the next steps needed to ensure we make best use of our digital potential.
