Culture, Learning, and Technology: Research and Practice provides readers with an overview of the research on culture, learning, and technology (CLT) and introduces the concept of culture-related theoretical frameworks. In 13 chapters, the book explores the theoretical and philosophical views of CLT, presents research studies that examine various aspects of CLT, and showcases projects that employ best practices in CLT. Written for researchers and students in the fields of Educational Technology, Instructional Design, and the Learning Sciences, this volume represents a broad conceptualization of CLT and encompasses a variety of settings. As the first significant collection of research in this emerging field of study, Culture, Learning, and Technology overflows with new insights into the increasing role of technology use across all levels of education.
"In this book, Benson, Joseph, and Moore offer a guiding framework for ways to study and reflect on the issues occurring at the nexus of culture, learning, and technology. Leading authors in such fields as pedagogy, globalization, intercultural sensitivity, social media, essentialism, and progressivism are brought together in a volume that promises to become essential reading for educators at all levels."
—Robert Maribe Branch, Professor and Department Head, Department of Career and Information Studies, College of Education, University of Georgia, USA
"Culture, Learning and Technology: Research and Practice offers a seminal examination across interdisciplinary, research, theoretical, and practical aspects of educational technology in cultural contexts. The text gives voice to a growing contingent of researchers and designers who believe that culture matters. The authors expose the strengths and weaknesses of the field and advocate for a more deliberate focus on culture. As we move further into the 21st century, this text will be a guiding light for all to see the value of culture when considering the human equation."
