Quick posting because I’m racing around today. But the book (with a chapter contributed by me and RRU colleague BJ Eib) “Emerging Technologies in Distance Education” is now available online (free version) or in print which you can purchase.
I guess I’d say the chapter I contributed to (Chapter 3 – “Imagining Multi-Roles in Web 2.0 Distance Education”) is a reflection of the optimism I have about the potential of social media for lifelong learning. We can be teachers/learners, authors/audiences and creators/consumers throughout our lifetimes through communities of like-minded people.
Details are at:
I’m really happy to be able to announce this.
George Veletsianos edited the book, and I was really excited when I read the proof version. It contains lots of great information from a range of authors. I’ll post more about it soon.
