Learning Community by Community: Preparing for a Knowledge-based Society (2010)

Revue « À lire en ligne », FCAF

In this article, the author describes the emergence of a new model of learning communities based upon the concept of lifelong learning as an organizing principle and social goal. He points to three forces driving the move: expanding globalization; increasing use of information and communications technologies; and exploding knowledge, especially in the sciences and technologies.

The author notes that those living on the margins of society face complex and interconnecting problems that defy simplistic solutions. A learning community is about whole people in whole communities, working and learning for the common good.

This article appeared in the 2010 edition of “À lire en ligne,” published by the Fédération canadienne pour l’alphabétisation en français (FCAF) annually. The author served as guest editor of the issue, which focused solely on place-based learning communities.
