In this paper we look at the changing face of education and go on to consider the different ways in which the so-called ‘net generation’ is using technology for learning. We discuss the arguments that sustain the emergence of a new generation in e-Learning that is already known as e-Learning 2.0 or the social e-Learning, a concept derived from the application of Web 2.0 technologies to teaching and training, discussing its potentialities for supporting the modern and independent lifelong learners but, even more important, to justify the modeling of a new conception of what will be the future of teaching and learning in the knowledge society.
