Learning Spaces: the book

Tags: | | |
POSTED: January 19, 2007

I have been reading an ebook called Learning Spaces that, in the words of the web-site, “focuses on how learner expectations influence such spaces, the principles and activities that facilitate learning, and the role of technology from the perspective of those who create learning environments: faculty, learning technologists, librarians, and administrators. Information technology has brought unique capabilities to learning spaces, whether stimulating greater interaction through the use of collaborative tools, videoconferencing with international experts, or opening virtual worlds for exploration. This e-book represents an ongoing exploration as we bring together space, technology, and pedagogy to ensure learner success.”

Learning Spaces is published by Educause and is available in hardback from Amazon, and free online as a pdf file. You can get it here. You can also download individual chapters from the Learning Spaces page.

I haven’t finished the book yet, but what I have read so far is both interesting and worth noting here.
