Description & Coverage
Description:

Although there is broad agreement that preparing global citizens for the digital age is a core responsibility of educators and schools, there is debate and uncertainty about how best to prepare students for this future.

Technologies for Enhancing Pedagogy, Engagement and Empowerment in Education: Creating Learning-Friendly Environments explores how technology-based learning can enhance student engagement, performance, and empowerment. This book provides researchers, educators, and practitioners with insights from educational programs, classroom teaching, and theory-into-practice research; places educational technologies appropriately in their social and cultural contexts; and reflects upon challenges and problems in evaluating and implementing changes in the field. It shows how computer-enhanced education can improve teaching and learning without confusing the increase of computer facilities with the quality of education.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Computer-Supported Education
  • Culture and E-Learning
  • Digital Technologies and Education
  • E-Learning and Empowerment
  • E-Learning and Engagement
  • E-Learning Pedagogy
  • ICT in Education
  • Technology-Enhanced Learning
Reviews and Testimonials

An excellent resource for both the novice educator with limited technology experience and the seasoned educator who considers him or herself fully versed in the use and application of technology in the classroom. [...] The major contribution of this book is that it systematically addresses a gap in educational literature that grapples with the burgeoning use of technology and the ethical guidelines for use of technology in diverse educational settings.

– Theresa Yugar, Claremont Graduate University, published in the journal Teaching Theology and Religion
