About this book

This volume provides a comprehensive and contemporary depiction of the swift evolution of learning technologies and the innovations that derive from their deployment in school education. It comprises cases studies, research focused on emergent technologies and experiments with existing tools in a wide range of scenarios. The studies included in this volume explore the conceptual and practical aspects of technologies that are used to support learning, with a multidisciplinary approach that encompasses all levels of education. The three sections of this volume emphasise the use of digital technologies from the viewpoint of different fields of expertise, explore multiple educational settings where technology was implemented to support the various stages of the learning process, and underline strategies, tools and technologies that play a crucial role in the professional development of teachers.
