|Abstract:||This paper reports on a review of learning opportunities that are emerging in online networks and communities. Participation in these new virtual spaces is not mandatory, but rather motivated by an interest to know, share, create, connect and find support, and these activities lead to a range of learning outcomes. New technologies offer the tools and means for people to participate in online networks and communities in a personally meaningful way. However, not all individuals are necessarily equipped with the skills or knowledge to benefit from these opportunities for their lifelong learning. It is suggested that educational institutions should find ways to connect with and get inspiration from these new learning approaches and settings in order to bring about their own transformation for the 21st century, and also to support competence-building for new jobs and personal development with a learner centred and lifelong perspective.|
