Campfires in Cyberspace
This ground-breaking book looks at the Web as a learning tool through multiple facets. A systemic view of the Web is combined with a systemic view of education, resulting in concrete tools that can be applied by anyone interested in using this medium for learning in any setting, at any age.
Instead of just looking at the technology of the Web, this book explores the underlying metaphors that limit our capacity to use the Web effectively. Using ideas first explored by Marshall McLuhan, coupled with a new theory of learning developed by the author, the reader is provided with a set of practical tools to assist in using the Web as a learning tool at any age level and in any educational setting.
This book is essential for anyone designing online courses, as well as for anyone interested in using Web-based resources as part of a learning experience. Corporate learning specialists and classroom teachers alike will find the content engaging and relevant as the true potential of the Web in education is revealed.
