Call for Chapter Proposals – Culture, Learning and Technology: Research and Practice

On behalf of the AECT Division of Culture, Learning and Technology, we invite you to submit a proposal for a book chapter to be considered for inclusion in a forthcoming book titled, Culture, Learning and Technology: Research and Practice. Much has been studied about culture, learning and technology (CLT), however there is limited research and practical applications on what happens at the nexus of CLT. This book seeks to address this gap. Part One will take a close look at the philosophy and meaning of culture, learning and technology (CLT) and its role in the field of educational technology. Part Two will present research and frameworks on the evolving culture of technology-mediated learning spaces, including, but not limited to, gaming environments and virtual communities. Part Three will present research and frameworks guiding the growing field of culturally relevant pedagogy. Part Four will look at the future of CLT, identifying the possibilities and challenges of the coming decade.
