Learning technology has long been divided into two camps: the theoretical study of the technology of learning and the practical study of the use of technology in learning. The Wiley Handbook of Learning Technology encompasses both of these perspectives, providing an authoritative overview of this burgeoning field. This volume covers the broad scope of educational and instructional technology from foundational theories and practices to challenges, trends, and future developments. Individual chapters tackle timely and controversial subjects, such as gaming and simulation, security, lifelong learning, distance education, learning across education settings, and the research agenda.

With 32 original and comprehensively referenced essays written by leading experts from around the world, theWiley Handbook of Learning Technology will serve as the ideal entry point for learning technology novices, a comprehensive reference for scholars and researchers, and a practical guide for education and training practitioners.
