E-learning Ecologies : Principles for New Learning and Assessment (Paperback) (Bill Cope & Mary
About this item
e-Learning Ecologies offers a theoretical overview of new and emerging learning environments, a review of the research evidence of their effectiveness, and a wide variety of examples of learning technologies and technology implementations that demonstrate these affordances in action. The first layer of the book is analytical, exploring seven ‘new learning’ affordances opened up by new media. The second layer is evidentiary—what does the educational research literature tell us about the effectiveness of teaching and learning in each of these seven areas of ‘e-learning affordance.’ The third layer is a series of case studies of specific technologies put to work in educational practice.
