Abstract

Recently there has been a growing wave of local initiatives in support of their public schools. Teachers and communities together have been playing an active role in the innovative efforts towards new educational methods aimed at helping schools. These grass root experiments, though very effective, tend to go unnoticed in the wide scheme of the educational system. However, if the most useful and meaningful of these initiatives could be fostered and developed, they may have the possibility of transforming it.

Didactic Strategies and Technologies for Education: Incorporating Advancements aims to be a platform for the most significant educational achievements by teachers, school administrators, and local associations that have worked together in public institutions that range from primary school to the university level. This book aims to be useful for both scholars and the citizens that are involved in improving the educational system.

Publisher Summary

Discussion

This book offers insight into the many things that are possible with technology in education. Case studies in this book relating to Classroom 2.0, for example, show how cross-border education can become a reality. The editors say in the introduction that this book was put together with many papers where English was not the authors’ first language. The editors did a great job it would seem. It was beneficial to hear the differences between strategies in different jurisdictions. I have no doubts about giving five stars to this book. I recommend it to anyone looking to enhance their knowledge and improve their techniques in education.” – Ashu MG Solo
