Overview

Enormous changes are taking place regarding how people learn. The introduction of new technologies and in particular the resulting possibilities for our virtual presence in virtual spaces, highlights some comparatively neglected aspects of learning. This book seeks to redress the balance by presenting a collection of papers, which view learners as embodied actors in both real and virtual spaces. The authors look at the relationship between space, identity and learning and how it is changing as we move into the 'information age'.
