About this book

A new overall interdisciplinary framework called “i learning” integrates managerial organization and technology aspects also known as “technology enhanced learning”. Open Networked "i Learning": Models and Cases of “Next-Gen” Learning begins its investigation with the important changes that have recently occurred within the management, technology and society fields. Social and cultural aspects of society that influence the “dynamics” and the “styles” of the learning processes are presented as well. The last section of this edited volume focuses on possible future scenarios of the learning processes by describing the main models, processes, tools, technologies, and involved organizations.

About this book:

  • The first available book that specifically focuses on “i Learning”.
  • Includes descriptive case studies that describe how the “i-Learning” framework has been instanced and implemented.
  • Presents social and cultural aspects of society that influence the “dynamics” and the “styles” of the learning processes.

Open Networked "i Learning": Models and Cases of “Next-Gen” Learning is suitable for advanced under- and graduate level students and professors concentrating on computer science, engineering and business management as a secondary text or reference book. Professionals and researchers who work in the related industry of technology enhanced learning will find this book useful as well.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This interesting book proposes i-learning--a new framework for technology-enhanced learning consisting of six elements: interdisciplinarity, interactivity, internetworking, individualization, immediacy, and interoperability (6Is). … The book contains six chapters. … The chapters in this well-written book are interrelated and allow the reader to understand the proposed 6Is framework. … should be useful to academics and educational researchers who work in the technology-enhanced learning domain. … useful to postgraduate students interested in the advances of technology-enhanced learning.” (Symeon Retalis, ACM Computing Reviews, February, 2011)
