Book Description

This book presents a range of teaching methodologies and skills assessments conceived as fundamental tools for teaching and learning in the 21st century. In addition, it explores how novel teaching platforms may be used to improve communication and how emerging software can enable the acquisition and horizontal transfer of knowledge and self-study.

Bringing together the latest trends in educational innovation and experiences and cases of educational innovation, the book will encourage progress and innovation in learning and applied technological tools. As such, it will have a significant impact on the education system, not only at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, but also in primary and secondary education, as well as in the ongoing training of business personnel, which offers a response to the demands of the environment.

Through its 19 chapters, this volume investigates a variety of models of teaching and learning that purport to provide students with the tools and skills necessary for success in a highly competitive, rapidly evolving, global labour market, where linguistic proficiency is increasingly important. The book´s scope runs from primary education to compulsory education and finally higher education.
