Educational visions: The lessons from 40 years of innovation

Ferguson, Rebecca; Jones, Ann and Scanlon, Eileen eds. (2019). Educational visions: The lessons from 40 years of innovation. London: Ubiquity Press.



Educational Visions looks to future developments in educational technology by reviewing our history of computers and education, covering themes such as learning analytics and design, inquiry learning, citizen science, inclusion, and learning at scale. The book shows how successful innovations can be built over time, informs readers about current practice and demonstrates how they can use this work themselves.
This book is intended for anyone who is involved in the study and practice of technology-enhanced learning. It includes examples from informal learning such as MOOCs and citizen science, as well as higher education. Although the foundations of this work are in the UK, its influence has spread worldwide, so it will be of interest internationally.
