The world is becoming a mobigital virtual space where people can learn and teach digitally anywhere and anytime. Emerging mobile technologies like wearables make the transformation even faster. In other words, more and more education is happening outside from schools or universities through technology. We as educators and scholars should ask especially for technological solutions supporting teaching and learning outside formal institutions. The book intends to offer the readers precise definitions about emerging technologies, with a strong focus on how they are/can be used for education via ground works, field studies and case studies.
Objective of the Book
There are a good number questions about the quality of education now and in the future. We can control what learners should learn and what they should not at schools through curricula. Yet the world has become not only a global village, but also a mobigital virtual space where people can learn and teach digitally anywhere and anytime, and we cannot always control what students learn through these media. The learner of the future is a totally “digital native” who has never lived in a world without Internet. So we should answer such questions as "How can we control mobile learning outcomes?", "Should we limit technology use at schools?, "What are the responsibilities of parents and teachers in monitoring and regulating technology use by students?" "How can social media be a part of formal education?", "How can technology assist learning to foster learning outcomes?", "How can technology enhance learning outside education institutions?"
