The SAGE Encyclopedia of Educational Technology examines information on leveraging the power of technology to support teaching and learning. While using innovative technology to educate individuals is certainly not a new topic, how it is approached, adapted, and used toward the services of achieving real gains in student performance is extremely pertinent. This two-volume encyclopedia explores such issues, focusing on core topics and issues that will retain relevance in the face of perpetually evolving devices, services, and specific techniques. As technology evolves and becomes even more low-cost, easy-to-use, and more accessible, the education sector will evolve alongside it. For instance, issues surrounding reasoning behind how one study has shown students retain information better in traditional print formats are a topic explored within the pages of this new encyclopedia.
- A collection of 300-350 entries are organized in A-to-Z fashion in 2 volumes available in a choice of print or electronic formats.
- Entries, authored by key figures in the field, conclude with cross references and further readings.
- A detailed index, the Reader’s Guide themes, and cross references combine for search-and-browse in the electronic version.
This reference encyclopedia is a reliable and precise source on educational technology and a must-have reference for all academic libraries.
