Library Journal

Cartelli, a computer scientist professor and author of Teaching in the Knowledge Society(IGI, 2006), teams up with Palma, a professor of Latin palaeography, to edit this two-volume set on information communication technology (ICT). Over 100 entries-covering a broad spectrum of related topics, including "Adult Education and Adult Learning Processes with ICT," "Evaluating Usability To Improve Efficiency in E-Learning Programs," "Children and Computers," and "Social Networking and Personal Learning Environment"-were written by researchers from around the world and vetted by a double-blind peer review before acceptance. The work is organized alphabetically by entry title, including a table of contents both by volume and by topic area. Each entry is made up of an introduction to the topic, followed by a discussion of its major concepts and a set of references and a list of key terms with definitions at the bottom.
