Learning?

This conference is on Technology Enhanced Learning and this workshop is on Future Learning Landscapes. Although the word learning is used every other sentence, it seems that most of what is said is on technology. Some questions:
What is learning? Who is that learner evryone talks of? Is user-driven always good? Is it good that everybody is saying to everybody what s/he is doing, and that everybody is able to see what others are doing?
What is the difference between knowledge and (trivial) information?
Are technologies/media extensions of our senses and our brains, and if so should technology converge to human function?
What about formal education? How can education in schools co-evolve with all new possibilities for sensing, acting and thinking using all these technologies and ‘environments’? Why are we here in a traditional learning environment in which experts frontally transmit information?
