With this timely book, editors Les Lloyd and Gabriel Barreneche present an eye-opening look at projects that are innovating with technology to improve education and, indeed, the very quality of people’s lives around the world. From collaborative learning communities and social networks to Web 2.0 tools, MOOCs, and mobiles, experts discuss an array of tech initiatives that teach students to think and act globally while helping to close the education gap between developed and developing nations. Contributors explain how students and institutions can reuse “obsolete” technology in places where it will be “new” and describe the impacts of such efforts on communities abroad. If you are interested in service-learning, internationalization, and study abroad—or if you are just looking for a way to keep your organization’s old technology out of landfills—Educational Technology for the Global Village will inform and inspire you.
