Abstract

The introduction of communications and information technologies in the area of education tends to create a totally different environment, which is marked by a change of the teachers' role and a transformation of the basic components that make up the meaning and content of the learning procedure as a whole. We could say that, despite any changes, the training process is subject to a tayloristic linear model of production, which takes the student at childhood and gives him back to society and the dynamics of the market with the hope that he will be able to respond creatively to the constantly increasing demands. As the student moves on the school assembly line, the teachers at the various levels give him the knowledge that has been worked out for each level in a predefined and uniform way. Is the introduction of training technology going to help reverse the closed model of training process, as we have known it up to now, or is it just going to modernize the ways and methods, keeping the main body of the training assembly line unchanged?
