Abstract

In most white-collar workplaces today, it is common for employees to have their own computer at their desk. Employees complete much of their work on the computer, and usually also have access to fast connections to the Internet for internal and external communication. This remarkable change in the tools of the workplace represents an important opportunity for the integration of learning with work. While the technology of the workplace has advanced at extraordinary speed, new theoretical approaches to work have led to notions of knowledge workers and learning organizations. The convergence of an increased emphasis on learning in organizations and the evolution of computer/telecommunications technology are leading to important changes in workplace learning.
