Abstract

This handbook represents a collaboration of researchers from the US, Canada, Singapore, Australia and Hong Kong. These theorists and teachers are unified in the use of technology to transform education. At the beginning of the 21" century, technological transformations are not a periphery concern for educational practice, but organising factors that involve government, democracy and the ways in which pedagogy and educational power are being redistributed in contexts of high technology. In the 1990s, the development of the Internet gave rise to conceptions such as the global village, and new ways of teaching and learning involving hypertext, multimodality and virtual classrooms. In this handbook, these conceptions of education are being redrawn to take into account the actual working practices of classrooms that mayor may not been hardwired into the global classroom.
