Mobile Learning Communities explores the diverse ways in which traveling groups experience learning ‘on the run’. This book provides empirical evidence that draws on the authors’ 17 years of continuing research with international occupational Travelers. It engages with themes such as workplace learning, globalization, multiliteracies, and emerging technologies which impinge on the ways mobile groups make sense of themselves as learning communities. International in focus, this book deals with an issue of increasing global significance and shows the complexities of the lives and learning experiences of such mobile cultures and their strategies for earning, learning, and living, thus challenging simplistic and stereotypical images of traveling groups still found in mainstream media and popular culture. Mobile Learning Communities brings together for the first time mobilities and learning communities into a single and comprehensive focus. It provides a detailed analysis of how mobile groups position themselves and how they are positioned by others. This text will appeal to scholars in the field of distance education and educational technology and to researchers in education, cultural studies, and sociology. It will also be of interest to educational instructors, policy-makers, and administrators, as well as teacher educators and pre-service teachers. It paints a vivid picture of the experience of mobility through the words of the mobile learners themselves, but also critiques existing notions of learning and suggests ways of creating new educational futures for all learners and educators.

The figure of the medieval “wandering scholar” (Pietsch) has never been as true as today: Academic Mobility and Migration have now become a reality for most people involved in higher education. We also know for sure that they are actively contributing to the postmodern transformation of the “social as society” into the “social as mobility” (Urry). Written by leading and emerging scholars, this volume explores the impact of Academic Mobility and Migration on institutions, people and their social environment. It also considers up-to-date aspects which remain relatively underexplored: Academic migration (vs. mobility), virtual academic mobility, North-South mobility, language policies at a “glocal” level, and questions of identity. The authors examine the personal, social, professional and educational consequences of Academic Mobility and Migration from a variety of disciplinal orientations including sociology, language education, linguistics and education. Some of the chapters also seek to propose alternative ways of analysing these phenomena. This unique book is an invaluable resource for anybody with an interest in educational mobility in the 21st century: researchers, teachers, policy-makers, politicians, administrators, but also college and university students.

Dramatic shifts in our communication landscape have made it crucial for language teaching to go beyond print literacy and encompass the digital literacies which are increasingly central to learners' personal, social, educational and professional lives. By situating these digital literacies within a clear theoretical framework, this book provides educators and students alike with not just the background for a deeper understanding of these key 21st-century skills, but also the rationale for integrating these skills into classroom practice. This is the first methodology book to address not just why but also how to teach digital literacies in the English language classroom. This book provides: A theoretical framework through which to categorise and prioritise digital literacies Practical classroom activities to help learners and teachers develop digital literacies in tandem with key language skills A thorough analysis of the pedagogical implications of developing digital literacies in teaching practice A consideration of exactly how to integrate digital literacies into the English language syllabus Suggestions for teachers on how to continue their own professional development through PLNs (Personal Learning Networks), and how to access teacher development opportunities online This book is ideal for English language teachers and learners of all age groups and levels, academics and students researching digital literacies, and anyone looking to expand their understanding of digital literacies within a teaching framework.

"This is a book of its time, and one for its time." So says Paul Trowler of Lancaster University, in his Foreword to this edited collection of new work. The book exemplifies the iPED Research Network's diversity, exposing both the links and the boundaries between the higher education researchers involved, their students and their institutions. But, as Professor Trowler goes on to say, "What all the chapters have in common is the rigorous and grounded approach based on evidence." The fifteen contributed chapters are thematically divided into three sections. · Responding to Complexity: authors from Australia, Austria and the UK consider aspects of academic life as diverse as funding and intellectual pleasure · Transforming Academic Identities: views from the UK, Eire and Denmark on evolving as an academic. · Pedagogy and Practice: exemplars of approaches to teaching and learning that use innovative technologies and methods across varying educational contexts. The Introduction by Professor Paul Blackmore of King's College London sets the scene. Chapters are supplemented by commentary from critical friends, providing alternative perspectives on the work by educational researchers from different disciplines, institution types or nations. Keywords are provided to encourage the reader to dip into the book according to their research interests.
