Abstract:The boom in online products and services is radically changing many aspects of both the economy and everyday life, and will increasingly affect individuals' learning needs. This article examines how education systems see their role in the 'new economy', and the means by which they can prepare students for the new tasks, challenges and opportunities they will encounter, while still having to cope with the constraints and contradictions affecting how they operate today.
