This title was first published in 2001. Offering a fascinating new perspective on the processes of technical and social change, this book complements contemporary innovation studies by adopting an integrative perspective on social learning as characterized by the introduction of educational multimedia. The contributors provide insights into policy making in the fields of education and multimedia, educational practices related to the use of multimedia and wider processes of technical change. Accessible in style, the book will appeal to researchers and policy makers alike and will be of particular relevance to those interested in education, media, science and technology.


’…it is refreshing to read about technology in the context of a conceptual framework…It is certainly of interest to those who are discovering that multimedia has a place in the educational environment in a greater capacity than a computing aid to classroom teaching…’ Widening Participation and Lifelong Learning
