INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY AS A LINK BETWEEN INFORMAL AND FORMAL LEARNING – EXAMPLES FROM CROATIA

A.M. Rogić, J. Vrkić Dimić

University of Zadar (CROATIA)
Lifelong learning as a contemporary paradigm emphasizes primarily in education systems, but also in the professional world, and within the educational policies it seeks to become a lifestyle of each individual. In such efforts, informal learning, and the awakening of this concept occupy a dominant position. Regardless of the lack of consensus in defining informal learning, its general characteristics consist in the fact that it happens along the way, without intent and often unconsciously. Informal learning encompasses all periods and aspects of life, so the question remains how to recognize, examine and finally evaluate it. The informal forms of learning have their numerous advantages, and one of its main features is disorganization. So the challenge is to find a way how to include such disorganized forms of learning in those organized, in order to increase the quality of teaching, the efficiency of school system and learning in general. One of the responses could be specifically the ICT (Information and Communication Technology). This paper focuses on this link, which strives to outline information about the attempts of systematic encouragement and examples of students' and teachers' ICT uses in Croatia.
