Technology and the Pedagogics of Learning
The book attempts to bring out the prospects and challenges of utilising technology in information dissemination within the education discourse. Primarily, this book addresses the challenges that confront both students and academics who are involved in dispensing information to students. In its thrust, the book attempts to explore how students have benefited from the use of ICTs, especially the internet, as ell as various e-tools that have not provided an avenue for interaction between students and academics, but as a source of fun. Some of the e-tools that have been explored in this book include blogs, podcasts, wikis, face-book, chat-rooms, among other, with the latest technological innovations such as twitter being earmarked for the sequel to this book.In addition to e-tools, the book deliberates on how technology have caused a paradigm shift as lecturers and students take on a new challenge of applying technology as a supplement to their traditional talk-and-chalk teaching methods The author intends to make this book part of a series of editions which are going to be produced by the same author on the utilisation of ICT for education, communication and marketing purposes. Suggestions will also be given on how emerging technological innovations would be used to enhance delivery of instruction and what their pedagogical implications within the education discourse would be.Due to the indispensable role that ICTs have played (and continue to play) in providing a conducive environment for teaching and learning purposes, the author recommends the book for those in the ICT field, students not only of ICT and Information Systems, but even the casual reader would find the book educative, informative and engrossing.
