Call For Chapter Proposals

In a digital context, education is continuously adapting to new scenarios and training proposals. This process means that students stop being a passive subject and become the protagonist of their learning, for which it is necessary to incorporate different resources and tools that allow them to acquire new skills and solve problems similar to those that occur in real life.

New approaches in EduTech and ID models continue to emerge for solving new learning problems. New thoughts and events have revealed how important educational technology and instructional design processes are in every learning environment and family life, as a very basic need, which cannot be noticed, especially during the pandemic period. This situation led to the development of new ideas, learning analytics, and learning design models, from face-to-face teaching to teaching outside the classroom. The most important of these, in addition to the use of instructional technologies, revealed how the principles of instructional design can be used effectively in distance learning and online learning.

The rapid advances in educational technology pose a great challenge for educators to stay abreast of the latest trends and for educational institutions who need to continuously update their digital infrastructure. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has caused the adoption rate of some of these technologies to be even faster than usual.
