Abstract

Aims to develop a theoretical model for understanding and enhancing effective self-learning in a networked human and information technology (IT) environment. Recent educational reforms in different parts of the world emphasize that independent self-learning throughout the life span is a sine qua non of education. Parallel to this is the development that the Internet and information technology have changed the modes of teaching and learning fundamentally and created unlimited opportunities for learning. There is an urgent need to develop a theory or model that can be used to deepen the understanding of the nature and process of self-learning and facilitate students becoming highly motivated and effective self-learners with the support of a networked human and IT environment. The implications drawn from the theory can contribute to the paradigm shift of education in current worldwide education reforms.
