Keengwe, Jared, Ed.; Mbae, Justus G., Ed.; Ngigi, Simon K., Ed.
The increasing internationalization of today's classrooms calls for learning institutions to prepare students for success in an interdependent and technologically-advanced world. Faculty who are competent in multiple 21st century skills are best equipped to engage students in curricula that are relevant, transformative, and engaging across content areas and cultures. "Promoting Global Literacy Skills through Technology-Infused Teaching and Learning" examines the function and role of globalization in 21st century teaching and learning, especially in light of technology integration and the need to prepare and empower global educators and global citizens respectively. Covering topics that range from social networking in linguistics to software used in engineering curricula, this premier reference work will be relevant to academicians, researchers, students, librarians, practitioners, professionals, and engineers. Following a foreword (Michael Searson) a preface (Jared Keengwe), and an acknowledgment section (Jared Keengwe), the following chapters are presented: (1) Enhancing Linguistic and Intercultural Competencies through the Use of Social Network Sites and Google Earth (Ellen Yeh and Greg Kessler); (2) Developing Global Sensibilities through a Technology-Enabled Active Learning Anthropology Curriculum (Joshua J.
