In the rapidly-changing world of the Internet and the Web, theory and research struggle to keep up with technological, social, and economic developments. In education in particular, a proliferation of novel practices, applications, and forms - from bulletin boards to Webcasts, from online educational games to open educational resources - have come to be addressed under the rubric of «e-learning». In response to these phenomena, Re-thinking E-Learning Research introduces a number of research frameworks and methodologies relevant to e-learning. The book outlines methods for the analysis of content, narrative, genre, discourse, hermeneutic-phenomenological investigation, and critical and historical inquiry. It provides examples of pairings of method and subject matter that include narrative research into the adaptation of blogs in a classroom setting; the discursive-psychological analysis of student conversations with artificially intelligent agents; a genre analysis of an online discussion; and a phenomenological study of online mathematics puzzles. Introducing practical applications and spanning a wide range of the possibilities for e-learning, this book will be useful for students, teachers, and researchers in e-learning.

English summary: Knowledge has become one of the most important resources in many economic, technological and academic domains. To understand the impact and potential of this development towards a knowledge-based economy and technology in the respective fields, we have to take a closer look at the processes responsible for bringing about new knowledge. Work in this field reveals that cooperative forms of learning are among the major sources of such knowledge. Consequently, this book supports the claim that learning is a process of cooperative knowledge creation and not simply a process of knowledge transfer. The focus of the collection of articles in this book is on how communication, cooperation, negotiation, knowledge creation, and innovation can be integrated into a comprehensive notion of learning. Cognition and technology both play a major role in the integration of these knowledge processes, as they are ultimately the foundation on which any form of cooperative learning is based. The articles in this book provide an overview of the state-of-the-art approaches, models and technologies in the highly dynamic field of cooperative learning. They cover the subject matter from both a theoretical and a practical perspective and offer several best practice examples of some of the key work being carried out in this field. German text. German description: Wissen ist zur wichtigsten Ressource in vielen okonomischen, technologischen und wissenschaftlichen Bereichen geworden. Um zu verstehen, welche Konsequenzen und welches Potenzial diese Entwicklung zu einer Wissensgesellschaft hat, ist ein neues Verstandnis fur die Prozesse der Wissensgenerierung notig. Aktuelle Forschungen bestatigen, dass kooperative Lernformen eine primare Quelle neuen Wissens sind. Daher versteht dieses Buch Lernen nicht als blossen Wissenstransfer, sondern als kooperative Wissensgenerierung. Wie kann man Kommunikation, Kooperation, Verhandlung, Knowledge Creation und Innovation zu einem integrierten Bild des Lernens zusammenfuhren? Welche Rolle spielen kognitive Prozesse und (Wissens-)Technologie? Dieser Band gibt einen Uberblick uber die aktuellen Ansatze, Modelle und Technologien im dynamischen Feld des kooperativen Lernens. Die Artikel sprechen sowohl aus theoretischer als auch aus praktischer Perspektive und bieten eine Vielzahl an konkreten Anwendungsbeispielen aus diesem Bereich.

How can novice e-learning researchers and postgraduate learners develop rigorous plans to study the effectiveness of technology-enhanced learning environments? How can practitioners gather and portray evidence of the impact of e-learning? How can the average educator who teaches online, without experience in evaluating emerging technologies, build on what is successful and modify what is not? By unpacking the e-learning lifecycle and focusing on learning, not technology, Evaluating e-Learning attempts to resolve some of the complexity inherent in evaluating the effectiveness of e-learning. The book presents practical advice in the form of an evaluation framework and a scaffolded approach to an e-learning research study, using divide-and-conquer techniques to reduce complexity in both design and delivery. It adapts and builds on familiar research methodology to offer a robust and accessible approach that can ensure effective evaluation of a wide range of innovative initiatives, including those covered in other books in the Connecting with e-Learning series. Readers will find this jargon-free guide is a must-have resource that provides the proper tools for evaluating e-learning practices with ease.

The new edition of The SAGE Handbook of E-Learning Research retains the original effort of the first edition by focusing on research while capturing the leading edge of e-learning development and practice. Chapters focus on areas of development in e-learning technology, theory, practice, pedagogy and method of analysis. Covering the full extent of e-learning can be a challenge as developments and new features appear daily. The editors of this book meet this challenge by including contributions from leading researchers in areas that have gained a sufficient critical mass to provide reliable results and practices. The 25 chapters are organised into six key areas: 1. THEORY 2. LITERACY & LEARNING 3. METHODS & PERSPECTIVES 4. PEDAGOGY & PRACTICE 5. BEYOND THE CLASSROOM 6. FUTURES

This book presents an overview of education technology and its use in schools, with a primary emphasis on best practices of technology enhanced learning; how new technologies such as mobile, augmented and wearable technologies affect instructional design strategies; and the content curriculum development process. Providing insights into the future of education and the upcoming pedagogies that will be applied in schools, it helps educators and other stakeholders make innovations for the new generations of learners in the 21st century. The use of emerging technologies such as mobile and ubiquitous technologies, context-aware technology, augment-reality, and virtual reality is contributing to making education adaptive and smarter. With the ever-changing technologies, how to equip teachers with these digital skills and transform their teaching style is also important to ensure that school education is more individualised and customised for students. Offering a global perspective with integrated practical cases, this timely book is of interest to educators, teachers, and education policymakers. And although most of the authors are from the academia, it provides non-experts with a novel view of what future schools will be like with the help of technology.

In recent years, the traditional way of teaching has been substituted by online teaching. Teachers have had to think about efficient and effective teaching methods and activities in online delivery that can keep students interested and engaged. It is important to examine teacher cognition and its relevance to classroom management and teaching practice as the role of technology in teaching and learning cannot be overestimated. The Handbook of Research on Teacher and Student Perspectives on the Digital Turn in Education examines the cognitions of teachers and students, their attitudes and perceptions regarding online teaching, and their personal experiences and challenges regarding the use of online platforms and digital tools. This book discusses the implementation of digital technologies in primary, secondary, and tertiary education that facilitates the learning and teaching process and creates a student-centered environment. Covering topics such as digital literacy, student engagement, and pedagogy, this reference work is an essential resource for practitioners, scholars, administrators, policymakers, researchers, academicians, instructors, and students.
