Teaching in the Knowledge Society: New Skills and Instruments for Teachers covers a pedagogical survey of the changes induced by information and communication technology (ICT) in today's society and education. It critically analyzes facts, instruments, solutions, and strategies while suggesting interpretations and hypotheses to develop a new way of thinking about ICT use in education.

Teaching in the Knowledge Society presents an historical description of education and ICT use and explains the theoretical reasons for the author's description and analysis of the experiences. It also drafts future scenarios for teaching-learning phenomena and for education in a society where ICT and knowledge management will play a more relevant role.
