VISIR 4th Consultation


Understand, network, mainstream
ICT for learning in Europe

Dear Colleagues,

the VISIR – “VIsion, Scenarios, Insights and Recommendations on how ICT may help making lifelong learning a reality for all“ project has arrived to its fourth phase of online consultations, targeting the professional community of open, distance and e-learning, ICT enhanced education and learning innovation. The strategic initiative of seven European open-distance and e-learning networks, VISIR aims to develop a shared vision on how ICT may help making lifelong learning a reality. It has produced by now three most interesting reports which reflected the stakeholders’ views and suggestions, based on real-life scenarios and insights.

Whilst getting closer to the formulation of key messages for the stakeholders of ICT enhanced learning innovation, we invite your opinion to finalise the strategic recommendations.



After exploratory investigations of the previous consultations about (i) the relevant factors of change, (ii) the contribution of ICT to the key policy objectives in learning and (iii) drivers, bottlenecks and barriers of the innovative efforts, now the question in focus is: What actions should be taken to boost and scale e-learning Micro Innovation Europe?

The division of tasks and responsibilities amongst the various levels of governance may be different country by country, region by region and even differences exist amongst institutions in the same sphere.

Tell us please how do you see:

What should policy do to boost and scale e-learning Micro Innovation Europe? What could be the relevant role of the European Commission, the national governments in terms of concrete actions?

What should leaders in education institutions do to improve the situation? Is this mainly a management question, an institutional strategy issue, maybe a financial resource distribution matter?

And what about the grassroots innovators themselves? Inspiration and hard work with creative elements may not be sufficient: advocating, promoting and advertising the results leverage on their learners for scaling up innovation are also necessary activity elements so that the world knows about their innovations.

The use of ICT for learning in Europe is widespread. We largely miss in the meantime a mainstreamed meaningful use of technology in learning, its impact as a driver of change for our economies and societies. Exchange of practices across sectors and mainstreaming the innovations is not yet a reality.

A common bottom-up vision should complement the existing top-down visions present.


It will take only few minutes of your time. Please visit the survey at and share your opinion!                          


The Consultation is available in English, Italian, Spanish, French and German.
