Miller, C., & Doering, A. (Eds.). (2014). The New Landscape of Mobile Learning: Redesigning Education in an App-Based World (1st ed.). Routledge. https://doi.org/10.4324/9780203108420

Ebook de acceso abierto disponible en la base de datos Taylor & Francis, https://www.taylorfrancis.com/books/mono/10.4324/9780203108420/new-landscape-mobile-learning-charles-miller-aaron-doering?context=ubx&refId=b3cbc651-8798-4aca-9990-97476770b34a

The New Landscape of Mobile Learning is the first book to provide a research based overview of the largely untapped array of potential tools that m-Learning offers educators and students in face-to-face, hybrid, and distance education. This cutting edge guide provides:

• An essential explanation of the emergence and role of Apps in education

• Design guidelines for educational Apps

• Case studies and student narratives from across the US describing successful App integration into both K-12 and Higher Education

• Robust, research-based evaluation criteria for educational Apps

Although many believe that Apps have the potential to create opportunities for transformative mobile education, a disparity currently exists between the individuals responsible for creating Apps (i.e. developers who often have little to no instructional experience) and the ultimate consumers in the classroom (i.e. K-20 educators and students). The New Landscape of Mobile Learning bridges this gap by illuminating critical design, integration, and evaluation narratives from leaders in the instructional design, distance education, and mobile learning fields.

Ebook de acceso abierto disponible en la base de datos de JSTOR, https://doi.org/10.2307/j.ctvbqs9d0

‘The Labyrinth of Sustainability’ offers the first comprehensive effort to analyze corporate sustainability systematically in the Latin American context—and to extract lessons for companies across the developing world. Featuring an introduction by the prizewinning author and Yale professor Daniel Esty, the book starts off with examining the “sustainability imperative”—the notion that businesses must work toward sustainability to be successful in today’s marketplace. The 12 chapters that follow present a collection of carefully developed and tightly framed case studies from companies across Latin America highlighting how they are addressing this imperative. Contributions from leading experts around the region bring a freshness and authenticity as well as a nuanced and grounded approach that make this volume a must-read for business leaders, government officials, non-governmental organization advocates, journalists and academics in Latin America and across the world.
