A Transformation of Learning: Use of the NII for Education and Lifelong Learning
- Bracey, Bonnie
For over a year the members of the National Information Infrastructure
Advisory Council have worked together to create a framework that will enable
us to reach consensus and make recommendations on many issues related to the
development and deployment of the National Information Infrastructure(NII).
To date we have organized our activities into three Mega-Projects:
We have developed a set of fundamental practices in five critical NII
- Visions and Goals for the NII;
- Access to the NII: and
- Privacy, Security and Intellectual Property and the NII.
We consider that the common ground is the fundamental principles of the
NII. These principals cut across industries; bridge the gap between state,
local, and federal governments; address the needs of pubic interest,
education ,labor and community groups, and reflect the knowledge and
experience of experts in NII-related fields.
- universal access and services
- privacy and security
- intellectual property
- education and lifelong learning , and
- electronic commerce.
The principles are intended to provide a foundation for the continuing
work of the Council and to facilitate debate and discussion with NII
stakeholders, the general public and outside experts. Though I will speak to
and address the educational principles, there will be provide the text of
all the principles in our document for the participants of this conference
so that you , as NII users and stakeholders will be able to participate in
our outreach by providing us feedback and advice regarding the document.
