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.
The titles in the series include:
- Curriculum Integration

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.
