We see theneed for, and the emergence of, new theories and models of and for theonline learning environment, addressing learning in its ICT context,considering both formal and informal learning, individual and communitylearning, and new practices arising from technology use in the serviceof learning. This paper presents six theoretical perspectives onlearning in ICT contexts, and is an invitation to others to bringtheoretical models to the fore to enhance our understanding of newlearning contexts."
