Abstract

This text analyses a meta-paradigm that integrates different approaches and disciplines on key aspects of learning and human capital development relevant in the context of the innovation society. The chapter goes through 5 key ideas: 1) The mismatch between formal education and the challenges of the innovation society. 2) The shift from what we learn to how we learn. 3) The fluctuating relationship between digital technologies and contents. 4) The changing conceptions of space-time and the Lifelong Learning environment. 5) The development of soft skills. Finally, this chapter ends with a selection of key ideas that can help to frame the discussion around key topics regarded as significant in the redesign of teaching and learning experiences in the coming years.

Keywords: learning, innovation, invisible learning, mismatch, Lifelong Learning, teaching, skills, competence, knowledge society
