As you can probably guess from looking through this website, I have a strong interest in interactivity. Not just as a medium, but also its impact on both the way we learn and develop. Though I never imagined I would be writing, It is wonderful to be a co-author with Yun Li in a chapter Using Sound to Enhance Interactions in an Online Learning Environment.
This chapter is part of a larger investigation into how new technologies, as well as new philosophies in interaction, can help to advance the way we think and learn. The book is scheduled to come out in Sept 2021 on Routledge. See below a listing of all the other great contributing writers, this book is ideal for students and scholars of educational technology, instructional design, professional development, and research methods.
Learning Technologies and User Interaction explores the complex interplay between the state of online education, advances in technological tools for education, and those who rely on them to construct knowledge and develop skills. As learning and training continue to move onto digital platforms, tools such as artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, video games, virtual reality, and more hold considerable potential to foster advanced forms of synergy across contexts. Showcasing a variety of contributors who are attuned to today’s networked technologies, environments, and learning dynamics.
