Crossing Boundaries in Vocational Education and Training: Social Dimensions and Participation

Within VET, technologies are involved in the learning processes taking place in the classroom, in the laboratory and during traineeship. In thelaboratory and during the traineeship, technologies are used in different ways: on one hand, they are (and they have always been) a regular part of the work activities, which are the subjects of learning; on the other hand, they “can serve many roles to support work-based learning” (Margaryan, 2008, p.17). Though, can the use of technologies enhance WBL activities while students sit in the classroom (off the job)? This review aims gathering information about the potential of ICT in crossing the boundaries of learning processes between classroom and work within initial vocational education contexts.
