Learning is not restricted to the time spent in school. It begins at birth and continues all our life. The present pattern in which we have education at the beginning of our lives, and then work in one field until an extended retirement period is changing. Lifelong learning is becoming part of modern life. This is because rapid technological change and growth in information require ongoing learning. Glottalisation and technological changes have accelerated during the last fifteen years and have created a new global economy. One of the challenges facing the developing countries is preparing their governments and their people to participate in the glottalisation process as well as in the communication and information revolution.
