Digital Learning: The Key Concepts provides a valuable reference for education professionals, particularly early-career Learning Technologists, academics and teachers getting to grips with the intersection between digital technology and education. The clear explanations give a rapid orientation within the ideas and terminology of this important aspect of the contemporary learning landscape.

Antony Coombs, Learning Technologies Manager (Technology Enhanced Learning), University of Sussex, UK

Navigating the constantly evolving digital learning landscape is a perennial challenge for staff, students and indeed anyone involved in any type of learning activity. Digital technologies are providing increasingly diverse ways of permeating the boundaries between formal and informal learning. However, it is essential that everyone involved in learning and teaching has a common understanding of the possibilities and constraints of technology that is based on scholarly research and current effective practice. This updated collection of terms provides an essential compass for key learning theories, concepts and resources for navigating the current digital learning landscape.

Sheila MacNeill, Senior Lecturer in Digital Learning, Glasgow Caledonian University, UK

As someone working in education who is also studying digital learning as part of a postgraduate qualification, this book is invaluable as a quick reference guide for key concepts in digital learning and also key concepts relevant to wider learning and teaching contexts. The definitions have enough information to provide clarification on the concepts covered, but are short enough that I can scan for what I am looking for. The concepts are presented alphabetically, so I can quickly find the definitions of the ideas, issues and technologies I am unfamiliar with. I would recommend that anyone studying or involved in digital education has Digital Learning: The Key Concepts by their side as a reference guide.

Alex Walker, Professional Recognition and Development Coordinator, University of the Highlands and Islands, UK
