Reviews and Testimonials
With its deep roots in the human history and current standardization paradigm in educational atmosphere, it is possible to have a foresight that pedagogical approaches will continue their influence in education. This book is a clear, impressive and helpful contribution to the pedagogical and andragogical teaching, since it engages the application of these approaches in online learning environments.

Overall, this volume provides an in depth analysis of the pedagogical and andragogical approaches in the age of Information Communication Technologies. The theoretical and empirical framework of the text provides guidelines for instructors on how to implement the two approaches to get a hybrid class. [...] This volume illuminates an important area of research for anyone interested in adult learning and online education.
– Rachida Labbas, Washington State University, USA
Pedagogical and Andragogical Teaching and Learning with Information Communication Technologies is a must have book for today’s educators who teach young learners or adults. This well-structured book provides rich content on a variety of topics that are of interest to educators including e-learning, e-mentoring, academic advising via virtual tools, pedagogical and andragogical teaching methods in online settings as well as age, gender, and cultural issues in online learning. [...] It is undoubtedly a valuable addition to an educator’s library, whether he or she already has an interest in using technology in instruction or not.
– Dr. Semire Dikli, Georgia Gwinnett College, USA
At first glance, a reader may simply assume from the title that the purpose of this book is to introduce new technologies applicable to various educational settings. However, this book covers much more. Pedagogical and Andragogical Teaching and Learning with Information Communication Technology contains a very wide range of content from theoretical background about pedagogy and andragogy to practical guidance in using the current technology with pedagogical and andragogical methods, and from teaching students to administering them with various technologies. The greatest strength of this book can be found in the breadth of the content. Additionally, I found it very helpful that the book was consistent in having a section about future research trends (or directions) at the end of each chapter. This section will be useful to novice researchers and doctoral students who are seeking their own research topics regarding how to use information communication technologies for educational purposes, whether teaching and learning activities or administering students.
– JaeHwan Byun, Virtual Environment Laboratory at Southern Illinois University Carbondale
In 16 well-written, well-structured chapters this volume addresses various facets of
ICTs and teaching and learning relevant to children (pedagogics) and adults
(andragogics). [...] I recommend this volume to a wide audience, including researchers,
practitioners, and university students – not only in the field of education but in any
other field involved with teaching.
– Ina Fourie, University of Pretoria, Online Information Review, 37 (6)
This volume seeks to overcome the disciplinary distinctions between the craft of teaching children (pedagogy) and teaching adults (andragogy) so that teachers and administrators can study both approaches and select the ones that fit their particular teaching and learning situations. [...] Chapters in this volume may spur discussions about teaching and learning in an online environment, or about the merits of separating pedagogy from andragogy.
