The evolution of information technologies, mobile devices, and social media as well as the needs of students, workers, and academics have experienced rapid changes in the past several years. This complex and dynamic reality requires new forms of delivery of learning content to students, the building of special learning environments, and new teaching methodologies for academics. Opening Up Education for Inclusivity Across Digital Economies and Societies is an essential reference source that aims to foster the international exchange of academic insights and approaches in order to broaden visibility in the development of technology for education, establish an international platform for interactions on information technology and application in education, accelerate innovation in education technology, and analyze the latest achievements and progress in new and emerging information technology for education with a special focus on higher education institutions. The book addresses applications of technology use and digital competence development in education systems around the world including both specific uses in classrooms and broader uses in national and regional policies. The book is ideally designed for educators, administrators, policymakers, managers, politicians, and academicians.
