LIVRO Design of Technology-Enhanced Learning: Integrating Research and Practice PDF Matt Bower



This book provides a broad academic and teaching audience with an integrated understanding of learning technology research, and how it can be used to enhance the design of learning environments. Whereas some books focus exclusively on research relating to learning technology and others propose ways to use technology effectively, this book synthesises research for the purpose of informing best practice. After laying pedagogical, technological and content foundations, it examines research relating to the educational use of Web 2.0, Social Networking, Mobile Learning and Virtual Worlds. Analysis across these contexts leaves readers with a nuanced understanding of how technology enabled learning design principles may (or may not) be abstracted across different learning technology environments. The book is designed to not only be informative but also immensely readable – so that it is accessible and useful for academics, practicing educators, research students and pre-service teachers alike.
