Introduction
This edited volume with selected expanded papers from CELDA (Cognition and Exploratory
Learning in the Digital Age) 2010 (http://www.celda-conf.org/) addresses the main issues
concerned with evolving learning processes, innovative pedagogies, and technology-based
educational applications in the digital age. There have been advances in both cognitive
psychology and educational computing that have affected the research filed. The convergence of
these two disciplines is increasing at a fast pace and affecting academia and professional practice
in many ways. Towards Learning and instruction in Web 3.0 addresses paradigms such as just-in-
time learning, constructivism, student-centered learning and collaborative approaches which have
emerged and are being supported by technological advancements such as simulations, virtual
reality and multi-agents systems. These developments have created both opportunities and areas
of serious concerns. This volume aims to cover both technological as well as psychological and
pedagogical issues related to the developments of Web 3.0. There are twenty papers selected for
this edited volume from among peer-reviewed papers presented at the CELDA (Cognition and
Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age) 2010 Conference in Timisoara, Romania in October,
2010.
