Education Applications & Developments: Advances in Education and Educational Trends Series

Mafalda Carmo

In this volume, a devoted set of authors explore the Education field, contributing to the frontlines of knowledge. Success depends on the participation of those who wish to find creative solutions and believe their potential to change the world, altogether to increase public engagement and cooperation from communities. Therefore, serving society with these initiatives and promoting awareness, as part of our mission, requires the reinforcement of research efforts.

These series of books comprise authors and editors work to address generalized research, albeit focused in specific sections, in the Education area. Contents show us how to navigate in the most broadening issues in contemporary education and research.

In particular, this book explores four major divisions within general Education, corresponding to four sections: “Teachers and Students”, “Projects and Trends”, “Teaching and Learning”, and “Organizational Issues”. Each section comprises chapters that have
emerged from extended and peer reviewed selected papers originally published in the proceedings of the International Conference on Education and New Developments (END) conference series (http://end-educationconference.org/). This meeting occurs annually with successful outcomes. Original papers have been selected and invited to be extended significantly, reviewed, and authors of the accepted chapters requested to make corrections and improve final submitted chapters. This process has resulted in the final publication of 28 high quality chapters organized into 4 sections. The following sections’ and chapters’ objectives provide information on the book contents.
