New technologies emerge all the time, feeling confused by it all then this is the handbook for you.
Over the last decade, in seminars, conferences, and workshops, Peter Tittenberger and I have had the opportunity to explore the role of technology in transforming learning.
From conversations during these engagements, a set of concerns has emerged:
Educators express interest in improving their teaching and learning practices, particularly emphasizing the need to improve engagement of learners (online or in-class).
While concerned about improving teaching and learning, educators generally resist:
- Advanced pedagogical discussions that are not readily transferable to the online or face-to-face classroom
- Technology-heavy hype and suggestions that the social element of learning can somehow be replaced.
This Handbook of Emerging Technologies for Learning (HETL) has been designed as a resource for educators planning to incorporate technologies in their teaching and learning activities.
It is written by the well respected George Siemens and Peter Tittenberger.
