This book will encompass the technological influence on learning and cognition from a cultural prospective. This book weaves together different kinds of learning technologies with the thread of cultural diversity to meet the local and global educational needs. For example, one can take the cultural context embedded in the “learning objects” and use it to teach about that culture. Different chapters under each section of the book will deal with different issues related to that particular section topic. Case studies will be included to illustrate educational changes that have occurred with technological advancements. Critical reflection, analysis and suggested research approaches will propose ways and means to handle the present and indicate trends for future.

The book will include the latest developments in education, particularly emerging technologies and their impact on culture and cognition. It will list successful examples of student modeling for multimedia learning environment design, instructional delivery systems, and applications of technology where computer and mobile technologies play an indispensable role. The book will also present discussions of innovative ideas, as well as issues related to learning, teaching and assessment , work place learning, the roles of current and future technologies in learning.
