Some years ago, Alvin Toffler said "The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn".

Looking back at the Closing Plenary and the last two days of eLearningLisboa 2007, this has become even more evident to me.

We need to shake our views and patterns of learning, reshuffle and reorganize them in different ways. We need to be flexible, alert, proactive, explorers, inventors at all times. Today... and tomorrow.. and the day after that... and the day after that.

My special thanks go to all the speakers, observers, rapporteurs, participants and the Organizing Committee of this conference that have reminded me to question my paradigms and inspired me to challenge myself for innovation.

NOW it is time to ACT - to create, to change, to collaborate, to play, to experiment, to share, to google, to wiki... to learn, unlearn and relearn.

For if there is for something to happen, it needs to start from ourselves first. We have to be the next best practice... the "InnoAgent".
