Abstract

What are the requirements for information society? What kind of skills and knowledge is needed for our future generations to be able to be active and productive citizens? In many studies which relates to education and information society have two different kind of approaches to the requirements of the information society. Narrow interpretation of the skills needed in information society emphasize the need to train citizens how to use technical tools, computers, networks and other media tools which are the most visible part of information society. Campaigns like “Every school should be connected to the Internet before year 2000” and “Internet skills to every teacher” are often closely linked to this narrow intepretation.
