About this book

This book aims at guiding the educators from a variety of available technologies to support learning and teaching by discussing the learning benefits and the challenges that interactive technology imposes. This guidance is based on practical experiences gathered through developing and integrating them into varied educational settings. It compiles experiences gained with various interactive technologies, offering a comprehensive perspective on the use and potential value of interactive technologies to support learning and teaching. Taken together, the chapters provide a broader view that does not focus exclusively on the uses of technology in educational settings, but also on the impact and ability of technology to improve the learning and teaching processes.

The book addresses the needs of researchers, educators and other stakeholders in the area of education interested in learning how interactive technologies can be used to overcome key educational challenges.
