This project examines which factors that have a significant impact on educational programs, where the learner is his or hers own didactic designer. The underlying data that leads to answering the key issues of this project is raised through empirical studies using a multi-case study with three different cases in three different educational settings. It is concluded that the basic meaning of the learning process should be clear to the learner and opportunities for different types of scaffolding should be present. In this context the teacher's overall organization and planning of the learning settings have a huge impact and also the availability of using ICT.
The project makes finally a future scenario, a low-fi prototype, expressed through a ‘visiones futura’, which in 11 items suggests a number of statements about teaching, learning, education and training.
