About this book

Introduction

The book departs from the approach of related titles by focusing on describing and reflecting upon the notion of seamless learning with regard to salient characteristics of learner mobility and bridging of learning experiences across learning spaces. It is the first such work that is solely dedicated to research on and the practice of seamless learning, uniquely combining interpretations, visions, and past research on and practices in seamless learning from diversified perspectives. The book also strikes a good balance between theoretical and practical perspectivess, going beyond a collection of reports on specific research projects. Instead of thick descriptions of research processes and findings, readers will find significant insights and food for thought intended to inspire further advances in the research on and practice of seamless learning.

About the editors

Dr. Lung-Hsiang Wong is a Senior Research Scientist of the Learning Sciences Lab., National institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. His work involves the theorization of and pedagogical design for seamless learning, mobile learning, Computer-Assisted Language Learning, Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, and teachers’ professional development. He has published more than 150 peer-reviewed papers or chapters in journals, conferences and scholarly books and is known for developing the characterization model “10 Dimensions of Mobile-Assisted Seamless Learning.” He has co-written a scholarly book in Chinese, “Move, Language Learning – Exploring Seamless Language Learning”, to be published by Nanjing University Press.

Prof. Marcelo Milrad is a Full Professor of Media Technology at Linnaeus University, Sweden, and the director of the Center for Learning and Knowledge Technologies (CeLeKT). His current research interests include the design of learning environments to support learning about complex domains, collaborative discovery learning, and the development of mobile and wireless applications to support collaborative learning. He was one of the seventeen scholars who co-authored the seminal paper on seamless learning, namely, Chan et al. (2006).

Prof. Dr. Marcus Specht is Professor for Advanced Learning Technologies at Welten Institute (Research Center for Learning, Teaching and Technology) at the Open University of the Netherlands and director oft the Learning Innovation Labs. He received his Diploma in Psychology in 1995 and a Dissertation from the University of Trier in 1998 on adaptive information technology. From 2001 he headed the department "Mobile Knowledge" at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology (FIT). His research focus is on Mobile and Contextualized Learning Technologies and Social and Immersive Media for Learning. Prof. Specht is an Apple Distinguished Educator and since 2013 President of the International Association of Mobile Learning.
