Technology in Education. Technology-Mediated Proactive Learning
This edited volume consists of extended papers selected from the Second International Conferrence on Technology in Education (ICTE 2015), which was held at the Caritas Institute of Higher Education, Hong Kong, SAR China, during July 2-4, 2015. Nowadays, technology has emerged in various facets of teaching and learning. In a technology-enabled learning environment, students can learn in more proactive ways. This aligns to the ideas of student-centered learning. Technology-mediated proactive learning has become an important topic for further investigation, and therefore ICTE 2015 took "Technology-Mediated Proactive Learning" as its main theme. The focus was placed on how technology can be used to enable proactive learning so as to enhance learning effectiveness and enrich learning experience. After a careful paper review process, a total of 26 papers were selected for inclusion in this volume. These papers are organized in five groups, namely, technology-enabled learning, mobile learning and ubiquitous learning, learning platforms and advising systems, open learning and online learning, and institutional strategies, policies, and practices.
