Adult learning dimensions: case study of blind and visually impaired people

Lora Tamošiūnienė

Abstract


The world today is looking into the ways of promoting and enhancing individual and national existence through activating lifelong learning. This trend places more and more demand on all stakeholders to be present in this undertaking and to encourage more participants to join in. The demand for active participation in learning from outside and the inner projection of one’s own existence is discussed in the didactic literature and in social research. Active participants in lifelong learning are adults whose situation can be described in dimensions. ICT as a tool has a particular power in extending the access of learning opportunities by “withdrawing from proximal view”. In such a way it offers yet a more liberatory approach to participation of yet broader groups of individuals. The current article looks into a small-scale case study of the blind and visually impaired adult learners for the presence of the universal dimensions of adult learning.
