Leveraging the power of technology to support teaching and learning is certainly not new. But with more low-cost, easy-to-use, easily accessible devices and systems than ever before, we are at a critical inflection point where we must decide how technology powers and aids learning in the classroom.

But is new technology the cure-all all? Some studies have shown students retain information better in traditional print formats. There’s no question about the potential for new technologies to improve learning, but it’s all in how it’s approached, adapted, and used toward the service of achieving real gains in student performance. It’s issues like this that are explored within the pages of this new Encyclopedia. To maximize shelf life, the editor and authors strove to focus on core topics and issues that will retain relevance in the face of perpetually evolving devices, services and specific techniques.

Features include:

  • A collection of 300-350 entries that are organized in A-to-Z fashion in two volumes available in a choice of print or electronic formats.
  • Entries, authored by key figures in the field, conclude with cross references and further readings.
  • Although organized A-to-Z, a Reader’s Guide groups related articles within broad, thematic areas.
  • A detailed Index, the Reader’s Guide themes, and Cross References combine for search-and-browse in the electronic version.
