Abstract

In today’s knowledge society, better identified as a learning society, the opportunities for self-instruction and lifelong learning are playing an increasing role due to Information Communication Technologies. Old and new communication technologies offer possibilities for learning, as long as the worker is capable of learning in autonomy. Training has a central role as an educational activity, which aims at promoting and updating knowledge. Knowledge society does not only require citizens and workers to have basic skills; it asks for a life-long learning. Documentation is a form of communication that allows tacit, unexpressed, informal knowledge to emerge. It provides knowledge of the individual experiences of teachers and educators that can be widely shared. In knowledge management, audiovisual and multimedia documentation has proved to be a useful and efficient means of recording the experiences that are to be shared.
