If you are interested in contributing to a collaborative book on "Emerging Technologies for Learning: Impact on Cognition and Culture," please visit:

http://our-e-book.wikispaces.com/call_for_chapters

This book (eBook and hard copy formats) will be published by AACE--Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education,  and internationally distributed through EdITLib--Educational & Information Technology Digital Library.

The book will be edited by Madhumita (Mita) Bhattacharya, from Athabasca University, Canada, and Massey University, New Zealand; Nada Mach from California State University, Dominguez Hills, as well as Mahnaz Moallem, from the University of North Carolina, Wilmington.

The idea emerged from a Panel Presentation several of us participated in at the E-Learn Conference in Las Vegas last fall and developed further at our symposium at the ED-MEDIA Conference in Honolulu in last June.

Please send a message to Mita at mmitab@gmail.com if you would like to discuss your ideas and participate in writing chapter(s) and/or serve as a reviewer. We will then send you an invitation to join the Wiki.

Timelines are posted on the Wiki, and we anticipate that the chapter should be approximately 15-20 pages in length (single-spaced) 4500-6000 words. Further guidelines on these will also be posted on the Wiki.

We will use the wiki space to initiate discussion on various topics relevant to this book. We plan to organize a symposium at the forthcoming E-Learn conference in Vancouver to discuss further on this book.

Final Call for E-Learn 2009 proposals due: Sept. 8; http://www.aace.org/conf/elearn/call.htm

What is needed more immediately is a short abstract on your proposed chapter with title and author's name.  We are looking forward to your contributions!!
