Managing Educational Technology

Title: Managing Educational Technology : School Partnerships and Technology Integration

Managing Educational Technology : School Partnerships and Technology Integration
English | 2018 | ISBN: 1138951021 | 175 Pages

Managing Educational Technology examines the ways in which stakeholders from businesses, K-12 schools, and universities can influence the quality and success of technology integration in primary and secondary classrooms.

Inspired by their experiences in the field as educators, education researchers, and technology evaluators, the authors present vignettes that highlight the benefits, demands, and limitations often associated with the introduction and integration of educational technologies to K-12 school environments. These examples also underscore the inherent nuances in partnerships among businesses, K-12 schools, and universities. Readers can use these rich examples when considering ways to integrate products into schools, as well as when discussing, analyzing, and evaluating the promises of and challenges in doing so. End-of-chapter questions guide readers to consider alternate actions and identify steps for additional growth, which complement the authors’ practical suggestions to strengthen business–school–university partnerships.

Any reader interested in educational technology, educational leadership, or business will benefit from this insightful investigation of business–school–university partnerships.

New Trends in E-service and Smart Computing

Title: New Trends in E-service and Smart Computing

Author: Tokuro Matsuo
English | 2018 | 116 Pages | ISBN : 3319706349

New Trends in E-service and Smart Computing

This book examines theoretical and practical aspects of emerging technologies in e-service and artificial intelligence from an academic and professional viewpoint. To do so, it focuses on three major areas: the development of novel user support systems; development of smart mobility; and emerging technologies in Artificial Intelligence (AI).

With regard to the development of novel user support systems, Chapter 1 introduces alternative ingredients recommendation using data on co-occurrence relation and ingredients categories to support cooking, while Chapter 2 introduces a study on location information inference using data acquired by low-energy Bluetooth devices. Turning to the development of smart mobility, Chapter 3 highlights a sustainable information infrastructure project for smart mobility systems. In addition, Chapter 4 presents a lifecycle-oriented development process to improve requirements and design in terms of uncertainties to provide sustainable information architectures for smart mobility.

In the book’s third and last part – emerging technologies in AI – Chapter 5 presents a summarization task for sports events on Twitter, focusing on an abstract approach based on sub-events during the sports event. Chapter 6 discusses the generation of headlines using a recurrent neural network based on a machine translation approach. Lastly, Chapter 7 explores customer behavior analysis using enthusiasm analysis, an approach that estimates customers’ activation levels.

The book gathers a selection of the highest-quality papers presented at the 4th International Congress on Advanced Applied Informatics, held on July 12–16, 2015 in Okayama, Japan. Given the breadth of its coverage, it offers a valuable resource for practitioners, researchers and students alike.

Serious Games Analytics: Methodologies for Performance Measurement, Assessment, and ImprovementTitle: Serious Games Analytics: Methodologies for Performance Measurement, Assessment, and Improvement

Editors: Christian Sebastian Loh, Yanyan Sheng, Dirk Ifenthaler

2015 | pages: 497 | ISBN: 3319058339

 

This volume brings together research on how gameplay data in serious games may be turned into valuable analytics or actionable intelligence for performance measurement, assessment, and improvement. Chapter authors use empirical research methodologies, including existing, experimental, and emerging conceptual frameworks, from various fields, such as: computer science software engineering educational data mining statistics information visualization. Serious games is an emerging field where the games are created using sound learning theories and instructional design principles to maximize learning and training success. But how would stakeholders know what play-learners have done in the game environment, and if the actions performance brings about learning? Could they be playing the game for fun, really learning with evidence of performance improvement, or simply gaming the system, i.e., finding loopholes to fake that they are making progress? This volume endeavors to answer these questions.
