Enhancing Learning and Teaching: Pedagogy, Technology and Language
By Jeong-Bae Son, Shirley O'Neill
In the space of approximately one hundred and thirty years, we have moved from the industrial age through the scientific age to the technological information age and the knowledge economy. With regards to pedagogy, this dramatic shift has placed traditional approaches to teaching and learning directly in the darkest shadow - cast by an illuminating, vibrant, new vision involving a collaborative and interactive community of learners in an increasingly globalised world both real and virtual.
Though by no means exhaustive in its coverage, Enhancing Learning and Teaching: Pedagogy, Technology and Language provides an entrée into developments in postmodern pedagogies in terms of approaches, emerging concepts about learners and learning, the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and the social construction of knowledge through networked learning and e-learning environments.
From the Preface
This book provides an entree into developments in postmodern pedagogies in terms of approaches, emerging concepts about learners and learning, the use of information and communication technologies, and the social construction of knowledge through networked learning and e-learning environments. It constitutes a valuable resource for educators, researchers and language teachers.
