Learning in a Changing World Series

Publisher: ACER Press

The Learning in a Changing World series addresses how the process of learning is evolving – including the array of resources available in the digital age, changing curriculum, and the different teaching strategies needed in order to use new media and technologies.

The Learning in a Changing World series presents the core areas for teacher librarians and school leaders to consider for 21st century learning: the digital world, virtual worlds, curriculum integration, resourcing, and the physical environment. All are essential elements to enable and empower our students to be lifelong learners and active participants in our society.

The Learning in a Changing World Series is a joint publication of ALIA, ASLA and ACER.

Aimed at teachers and teacher librarians, this informative series considers the way learning is evolving in the digital age. Erudite and forward thinking educational theorists and practitioners (Dean Groom, Dr Susan La Marca, Judy O’Connell, Sandra Ryan, Dr Ross Todd, and June Wall) focus on the impact of technology on curriculum and teaching practices in schools. Each of the five books presents an aspect of technology led change, citing research, practical examples, and a large number of resources for additional information and support. Broadly, the topics include engaging learners in the Web 2.0 world; implementing Guided Inquiry in classrooms and school libraries; the importance of appropriate physical resources and spaces for learning; the nature of inquiry, collaboration and digital resources in the 21st century; and the educational value of engaging in virtual worlds. Clear and concise, the series reveals how to reconcile features operating in the changing paradigm with teaching and learning processes.
