Title: "Open and Distance Education for All: Exploring Creative Pedagogy Methodologies and Evaluating Uses of Information Technology"

Handbook Aims

Focusing on the common good, it is necessary to reformulate all the models and strategies used so far in the learning-teaching process, since human and formative quality must prevail over any index of scientific quantification online, within the group of people dedicated to the face-to-face and distance training. These are people, models and techniques that must be recycled and updated in light of the notions and technologies of social diffusion.

 

Urgent solutions are required in the field of education, given the new sociological gaps between populations located in rural environments, large cities, smart cities, etc. and who daily resort to videoconferencing, virtual tutors, webinar, ebook, podcast, blog, etc. All solutions must be focused on the didactic and technological resources available to potential students and teachers, in their usual work places –e.g., schools, institutes, universities, companies, associations, organizations, and so on–, with extension to homes.

 

It aims to examine all those positive aspects that derive from the use of information technologies in the teaching-learning process, and that can be enhanced through the evaluation techniques, methods, strategies, and so forth, applied to innovative pedagogy.

 

The present project encourages high quality, originality, clarity, precision and significance works to eliminate uncertainty of meaning and increasingly unify all research works in Digital Pedagogies; Evaluation of the Methods and Techniques Educational Process; Smart Learning; Readiness of Educators for TEL; Accessibility; Communicability, etc., from production to realization of the emerging applications, systems and new technologies. In other words, the education binomial between real and virtual worlds, it is necessary that the paradigm changes be carried out efficiently, creatively and with low costs. The topics and subtopics can be synthesized and alphabetically arranged as follows (this does not mean that other areas of interest can be included in the editorial project):

Submissions:

Two-stage submission: First, interested researchers and practitioners are invited to submit a chapter proposal clearly stating your focused domain problems and contributions related to one of the above topics due on * Open *; second, authors of accepted proposals will be notified by "between two / three weeks after the submission/s" about the status of their proposals and sent chapter organizational guidelines. Full chapters are due by * Open *. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a triple-blind review basis. The handbook is scheduled to be published in 2021 by Blue Herons Editions (Canada, Argentina, Spain and Italy).
