Informal Learning in Lifelong Education

Zeljka Pozgaj


Abstract - This paper exhibits basic features of lifelong education and possible forms of learning. Informal learning is elaborated in more details than other forms. The process of informal learning is a real example of lifelong education where an individual has total control over the learning process and its results by choosing learning forms that suit them best at a particular time (reading the written materials, communication with people from their real or virtual surroundings, exchange of experiences, learning on mistakes...). The paper emphasizes the importance of information and communications technologies in the process of informal learning, i.e. lifelong education.
