While incorporating digital technologies into the classroom has offered new ways of teaching and learning into educational processes, it is essential to take a look at how the digital shift impacts teachers, school administration, and curriculum development.
Academic Knowledge Construction and Multimodal Curriculum Development presents practical conversations with philosophical and theoretical concerns regarding the use of digital technologies in the educational process. This book will also aim to challenge the assumption that information accessibility is synonymous with learning. It is an essential reference for educators and practitioners interested in examining the complexity of academic knowledge construction in multimodal, digital worlds.
