Abstract

A one-stop knowledge resource, Emerging Technologies in Distance Education showcases the international work of research scholars and innovative distance education practitioners who use emerging interactive technologies for teaching and learning at a distance. This widely anticipated book harnesses the dispersed knowledge of international experts who highlight pedagogical, organizational, cultural, social, and economic factors that influence the adoption and integration of emerging technologies in distance education. Emerging Technologies in Distance Education provides expert advice on how educators can launch effective and engaging distance education initiatives in response to technological advancements, changing mindsets, and economic and organizational pressures. The volume goes beyond the hype surrounding Web 2.0 technologies and highlights the important issues that researchers and educators need to consider to enhance educational practice.

Abstract

The authors take a detailed look at the economic competence and financial literacy of young adults, especially of those who start an apprenticeship or who take up their studies at a university. Economic competence and financial literacy are of special interest within this group, because these young people are – mostly for the fi rst time in their lives – responsible for autonomously managing their own fi nancial affairs and deal with economic challenges.&#xD;

Abstract

Teaching in Blended Learning Environments provides a coherent framework in which to explore the transformative concept of blended learningÑthe organic integration of complementary face-to-face and online approaches and technologies. Built upon the theoretical framework of the Community of InquiryÑthe premise that higher education is both a collaborative and individually constructivist learning experienceÑthe authors present seven principles for harnessing the opportunities for teaching and learning available through technology. Focusing on teaching practices related to the design, facilitation, direction, and assessment of blended learning experiences, this text addresses the growing demand for improved teaching in higher education.

Abstract

Masculinities are the focus of current debates in education policy and educational science. If one considers the discussion about 'boys as 'losers of education', masculinity as such already seems to be a risk of discrimination. At present, there are efforts to focus particularly on men or masculinities in educational institutions: Initiatives for more male specialists in day-care centres or schools want to create more educational justice through the mere presence of men. In doing so, masculinity is currently identified as a professional resource. An ascribed male gender already seems sufficient in itself for the quality of pedagogical professionalism. Constructions of masculinities also influence the establishment of institutional structures.

Abstract

The transformations of our society place the onus on the teaching professions to acquire new skills to enable them to respond to the needs of a complex reality in constant evolution. This is why the Degree Course for Professional Educator has gone through ongoing radical changes over recent years, designed to synthesise the theoretical and practical dimensions. This book is aimed at recording such changes in the attempt to provide a snapshot of the youth universe through the discussion of data emerging from a questionnaire, and the analysis of various scholastic autobiographies written by the students themselves. The objective of the publication is to understand the backgrounds of our students, what are their relations with the school and with the teachers, what expectations they have in relation to the academic world and their future in professional and personal terms. The book is therefore aimed at secondary school teachers, at University teachers and at the educators themselves, as well as at all those who are engaged with young people and adolescence in various capacities.

Abstract

This book focuses on learner-computer interactions (LCI) in second language learning environments drawing largely on sociocultural theories of language development. It brings together a rich and varied range of theoretical discussions and applications in order to illustrate the way in which LCI can enrich our comprehension of technology-mediated communication, hence enhancing learners’ digital literacy skills. The book is based on the premise that, in order to fully understand the nature of language and literacy development in digital spaces, researchers and practitioners in linguistics, sciences and engineering need to borrow from each others’ theoretical and practical toolkits. In light of this premise, themes include such aspects as educational ergonomics, affordances, complex systems learning, learner personas and corpora, while also describing such data collecting tools as video screen capture devices, eye-tracking or intelligent learning tutoring systems.

Abstract

This introduction will not simply introduce the topic of the book as a&#xD;classical introduction. Instead, it will combine the first chapter of the&#xD;book with introduction by focusing on how to start a workshop or a&#xD;course. This is the way I often open my courses and learning workshops.&#xD;We will begin, then, by examining the very concept of introductions in&#xD;the widest sense, with a special focus on the function of names: the&#xD;names that individuals are given at birth, usually by their parents or&#xD;extended family, and that are often chosen because of their significance.&#xD;People’s names are imbued with meaning, with symbolism, with cultural—&#xD;and often religious—meaning, which for some may carry positive&#xD;connotations while others may find a certain name at best aseptic or, at&#xD;worst, frightening. And in most cases, your name is the first aspect of&#xD;your person that others experience.
