Abstract

The use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in education is changing learning itself in significant ways. The possibilities afforded by networked learning are exciting commentators around the world and leading to great interest in concepts such as the “virtual university”, driven forward by policy emphases on lifelong learning. Having examined these developments, the paper analyses the key issues within learning itself, including learning models and learning styles, and relates these to current developments in networked learning. Research into information behaviour is then examined within the same context and in turn this is linked to the development of generic information skills. This leads to a discussion of “Networked Learner Support” and conclusions on the need for collaborative approaches if students are to receive a rich experience of learning within a constructivist pedagogy.
