Beyond Rethinking International Co-operation between EUROPE & Latin America
PILOT PéROJECT @LIS " SHILL SHORTAGE"
Premise for implementing the MoU of the Intenational NETWORK -
To all potential partners
of the Project @LIS on e.Learning in a cultural diversity on the issue
SKILL SHORTAGE for developing contemporary KNOWLEDGE DRIVEN ECONOMY.
Dear colleagues and friends, starting with the debate that will be
necessary for developing a Shared Memorandum of Understanding of the
network of partners I would like to underline the following key
challenge that will be the fundamental aim of the "SKILL SHORTAGE"
PILOT PROJECT .
As a matter of facts a key challenge of contemporary transition
industrial society towards knowledge driven economy is the
skill development .
To develop educational strategies in internet to focus this general
need of the developmental networked economy , is becoming a world wide
need to grow up a model and units of "networking e.learning"
(Net-Learning) on the general issue SKILL SHORTAGE for developing
contemporary KNOWLEDGE DRIVEN ECONOMY .
Starting from different economic and cultural point of view, among
Europe and Latin America Countries , that will constitute the richness
for the complex solution of this developmental problem, we consider a
great contribution to overcome some conditions of the contemporary
increasing of depressed economy around the entire , to develop a
Networking e.learning pilot project on the issue SKILL SHORTAGE to
enhance the quality of intellectual e.workforce of the Information
The initial proposal of the LRE-EGO-CreaNET of the University of
Florence will be focused on the strategic alignment of e.workforce
the economic development of "Networked Knowledge Society", by means
common effort to create new career opportunities in the context of
permanent education methodologies and strategies of Net-Learning for
e. workers at all skill levels .
To develop skilled e.workforce, as well as a catalyst to economic
sustainable co-operative development , we suggest to initiate debate
following short list of issues that can be necessary to start to
elaborate the MoU and after the pilot project @LIS in a shared of
1) Scenery of Society Driven Economy
2) Open Net.learning for the virtual community international
3) Net-Learning models of lifelong learning of e.workforce
4) Educational design and interactive use of net.learning platform
5) Knowledge Management for Enterprise &Human Resource development
6) e.Working planning in an international context of net.learning
7) e.Quality Methodology and indicators of collaborative assessment
8) Working&Business Plan of the Pilot Project
I suggest also to see a before proposed by LRE/EGO-CreaNET MODEL of
VIRTUAL ORGANIZATION for BUSINESS LABOUR VIRTUAL UNIVERSITY for

Because of the dimensions great dimension of @LIS proposal on
a different cultural dimension need in principle to understand certain
a not localised international context of sharing knowledge.
Therefore starting from the previous issues , in order to explain
net-learning in the cyberspace, LRE-EGO-CreaNET think that it will be
necessary to redefine what
the learning approach is and what kinds of infrastructure should we
In fact the net-learning activities in the cyberspace took place as a
learning by networking and navigating in a non-linear fashion, which is
different from the
old version of "e.learning long-distance activities" finalised to
pre-defined disciplinary contents.
Net-learning is an interactive creative endeavour developed in a not-
fashion. Therefore for a pilot program @LIS of Net Learning, that would
and improve different cultures background it will be mandatory to
reconstruct the obsolete "e-learning" technology practices.
Essentially in the net -learning theory we must provide a framework for
understanding how the learners develop a research & development on SKILL
selecting , editing and organising on the WWW the digitalized
into new creative shared knowledge.
Therefore we need, during the description of Pilot Project WORKING PLAN,
develop an "net-learning theory" , going to result to develop a new
methods and strategies of net- learning by navigating in the
a matter of facts it is too easy to understand that Net-learning in
cyberspace is quite
different to the traditional long distance transfer of contents and we
to study a new approach for NETWORKING e.LEANING , following the change
the Technology Driven Economy to the Knowledge Driven Economy.
For developing a good pilot project probably we need to reply to some
questions as well as the following :
How can we define what, better solution for Net-learning, can be
the digital context of the proper country for developing SKILL BUILDING
opportunities ? How can we set out net-learning strategic approaches to
lifelong education in a different cultural international dimension ? How
very complex enterprise contribute to the ways in which learners
learning to overcome SKILL SHORTAGE of intellectual "e.workforce"
to a co-operative sustainable KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY all over the world ?
The above asking questions can be given a result for the premise of MoU
digital net-learning pilot project @LIS on SKILL SHORTAGE open to a very
space- extension and different dimensions of many cultural contexts of
experiencing into a net-learning international situations.
If you like to start to this open debate to the above or other issues
questions that you kindly would propose to the Forum debate , you can

Finally I would like to ask to all colleagues and friends in the list
this mail that would like to be effective partner to the networking
SHORTAGE @LIS Pilot project to send to me a brief letter of intent by
traditional surface Post to my address written in the head paper of
institution, enclosing a brief profile of your institution.
In this letter of intent that you need to send to me approximately
the 30/JUNE-2002 , you will to specify that you would like to
well as an
interactive partner to the networking e.learning SKILL SHORTAGE
Pilot project proposed by the LRE-EGO-CreaNET of the University of
Italy and you will add a brief comment about your role in the pilot
project development, with the indication of the name e.mail and phone
the Pilot-Project in your Institution .
Thank you very much for your kind co-operation . My best regards Paolo
