Index

“A sophisticated treatise on the multidimensional nature of empathy and its connections to depression. Firmly grounded in empirical research, Dr. Chambliss deftly weaves together the biological, psychological, interpersonal, and cultural variables shaping both empathy and depression, as well as the relationship between the two. The result is a comprehensive exploration of the human experience as embedded in the context of today's complex and rapidly changing world.” - Robin Knoblach, Ph.D., Clinical and Forensic Psychologist, Private Practice, Herndon, VA

“If you are interested in what experts from the around the world have to share about up-to-date advances in educational technology, then Educational Technologies by Lijia Lin and Bob Atkinson belongs on your bookshelf.” - Richard E. Mayer, Distinguished Professor, University of California, Santa Barbara, and editor of The Cambridge Handbook of Multimedia Learning.

“This volume is an ambitious undertaking addressing a persistent problem in getting the findings of educational technology research into large-scale practice. The focus is primarily on new technologies and innovative use of those technologies. Authors come from around the world and include many international scholars. Hopefully their efforts as reported in this book will have a large-scale, sustained and systemic impact on practices and policies pertaining to effective use of educational technology.” - J. Michael Spector, PhD, Professor, Learning Technologies, University of North Texas.

“Educational technology has progressed substantially from the days when any new technology that potentially might be used in education immediately attracted supporters advocating its use. Today, the critical factor in the uptake of technology is the manner in which it interacts with human cognitive, motivational, social and emotional systems. Educational Technologies: Challenges, Applications and Learning Outcomes, is edited by Lijia Lin and Bob Atkinson, both expert in the area of educational psychology. It collects the work of global leaders concerned with the interaction between human attributes and educational technology. The result is a book wide in its scope and deep in its analyses. I enthusiastically recommend it to anyone with an interest in this important, rapidly expanding field.” - John Sweller, Emeritus Professor of Educational Psychology, School of Education, University of New South Wales, Australia.

The book will be of interest to a diverse audience including (a) researchers from education, psychology, computer science, and other interdisciplinary areas; (b) instructional designers, media specialists, assessment specialists, developers, and other professionals; (c) administrators and policy makers; and (d) students from educational technology, educational psychology, learning sciences, computer sciences, cognitive psychology, and other interdisciplinary areas.
