New publication about Narrative Learning Environments
'Technology-Mediated Narrative Environments for learning' is the title of a new Sense publishers book, edited by Kaleidoscope researchers Giuliana Dettori, Tania Giannetti, Ana Paiva and Ana Vaz.
'Narrative has always been used as
a means for learning, both in school and in informal contexts.
Technology has further increased the possibilities of exploiting its
potential for education. Is there an added value, though, in using
technology to realize narrative learning experiences? And what are the
advantages of embedding narrative in technology-based learning
environments? Addressing such questions is the aim and focus of this
volume.' See here for further details.
