A Trans-European Network for Education and Training.
Figueiredo, Antonio Dias de; Steele, Rosalind
This paper proposes a communication network for the European Community and beyond which would provide a unique meeting point for participants from the fields of education, training, technology, research, industry, and service to engage in productive forms of dialogue and collaboration; which would be financially self-supporting after a few years; and which would allow for monitoring of its own performance and impact. Highlighted topics include (1) access to new know-how; (2) a network for European Community (EC) programs; (3) what the network will be like, i.e., bulletin boards, access to services, and running a forum; (4) a BBS that would serve as a practical model for the network using standardized communication services, home computers, and existing telephone lines; (5) language issues, i.e., systematic language translation and multi-lingual materials; (6) strengthening cooperation between education and the private sector; and (7) funding, costs, and assessment.
