Twenty years ago, higher and school education had entered eventually the Information Age. Started with the Information Super Highway, followed by several developments in educational information and communication technologies such as synchronous and asynchronous interactions, videoconferencing, blended and neo-blended education, online learning and teaching, e-schools, cyberspace, cloud computing, wireless schooling, and transnational collaborative education, among others.
This book holds six articles that present an overall picture of education and how is changing in nature, tools, and processes as a result of several major digital developments since 1995. It is hoped that this work could help educators in recognizing the new horizons toward which education movement is heading. The book presents six themes as follow:
1- The Rise and Fall of Conventional Schooling
in Light of the Information Age.
2- Inter-independence Collaborative Model for Sustainable Transnational Higher Education in the Information Age- a new science of eLearning in the making.
3- A Paradigm of Transnational Collaborative neo-Blended Learning: toward an exchange theory of growth need – responsive source transactions.
4- A Systemic Assessment Framework for Blended Achievement in Transnational Schools as Collaborative Learning Communities.
5- The Countenance of Info- Communication Technologies- Re-Inventing the Quality of Future Schooling.
