The Advances in Information and Communication Technology Education (AICTE) Book Series serves as a medium for introducing, collaborating, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating new and innovative contributions to the theory, practice, and research of technology education applicable to K-12 education, higher education, and corporate and proprietary education. The series aims to provide cross-disciplinary findings and studies that emphasize the engagement of technology and its influence on bettering the learning process. Technology has proven to be the most critical teaching strategy of modern times, and consistently influencing teaching style and concept acquisition. This series seeks to address the pitfalls of the discipline in its inadequate quantifiable and qualitative validation of successful learning outcomes. Learners with basic skills in reading, writing, and arithmetic master those skills better and faster with technology; yet the research is not there to defend how much better or how much faster these skills are acquired.
Technology offers educators a way to adapt instruction to the needs of more diverse learners; still, such successes are not generalized across populations or content areas. Learners use technology to acquire and organize information evidence a higher level of comprehension; but we are not sure why. The purpose of the AICTE is to grow this body of research, propose new applications of technology for teaching and learning, and document those practices that contribute irrefutable verification of information technology education as a discipline.
