Supporting Learning in the 21st Century
Technology-enhanced learning may not flow readily off the tongue or be easily translated as a brand name, but it very consciously reflects what it is: using ICT to secure advancements in learning. By taking advancements as the objective, we go beyond the attempt to reproduce classical ways of teaching via technologies. Technology-enhanced learning combines but places equal emphasis on all three elements - on technologies, on learning and on enhancements or improvements in learning. This will help us in devising ICT-based solutions which motivate and inspire learners and teachers, engaging them in meaningful learning and teaching experiences.

Its objective is to encourage the emergence of new learning models that are sustained by the context-aware use of technology and anchored in the practices of users.
