Abstract

Modern learners have access to almost unlimited
resources of information and they can obtain, share and
develop knowledge through a multitude of different media. Education
is a way of accessing and developing knowledge and
it has gotten a new meaning. Education is now about how
you handle knowledge, it is not a specific place where you can
access scarce information. Pervasive or ubiquitous communication
opens up for taking the organizing and design of learning
landscapes a step further. Furthermore it calls for theoretical
developments, which can open up for a deeper understanding
of the relationship between emerging contexts, design of contexts
and learning.
