This book discusses educational uses of technology in the service of enhanced learning. Bringing together contributions of researchers, practitioners and policy-makers, it aims to improve communication and understanding in educational research and practice involving technology. Networking is specially emphasized, since increasingly education via technology is available world-wide. Furthermore, many issues of pedagogy, access, equity, culture and social effects are discussed, alongside questions of technology. Technology is a means to allow people to enhance their abilities. More important than technology itself are the educational processes and outcomes. A substantial part of this book discusses these two central issues.
