Summary/Abstract: Analyses the different educational targets in formal teaching. He makes differences among three targets. They are: (a) conveying more and more new knowledges, (b) developing students’ competences and (c) preparing them to the real life after school. They are in competition in the sense that the teachers in formal educational settings tries to meet those targets at the same time. These are, however, not different targets but the different dimensions of the human learning (’what to learn’, ’how to learn’ and ’why to learn’). Integrating these dimensions of ’learning’ may help to coordinate the activities which are in competition with each other today.
