Information Technology and Education: Vision and Prospects

Beena Shah (Editor)
Synopsis If our society is assumed as hardware, then education must be considered as its software. Both are inter-related, their changes also influence each other. Now the world has come under the grip of a new phenomenal technology, called Information Technology (IT) or Information Communication Technology (ITC). Therefore, the influence of IT in all dimensions and domains of education is obvious. Application of IT is receiving increasing attention from researchers, service providers as well as from government in the educational arena. Despite this attention, few books present a coherent picture and introduce a specific conceptual framework. In this groundbreaking volume, many renowned educationalists and technocrats of India have effectively demonstrated how IT is the common concept linking all aspects of education, i.e., delivery of education, on-line learning, instructional technology, examination, administration of real and virtual educational institutions. This unique volume deals with all levels of education where the application of IT is feasible, i.e., primary to higher and professional education. Following an introduction to key themes and concepts, contributors represent a broad spectrum of disciplines and perspective that review the conceptual basis for understanding and discussing application of IT in education. They also address critical issues such as ethics, policy, quality assurance and explore current emerging social and psychological issues related to IT and education. This is an exciting publication and the list of contributors is remarkable. Everyone would genuinely appreciate to finally see a high-quality book that can be of immense value to the researchers, policy planners, educationists and students.
