Abstract

To be successful members of a diverse, multicultural society, individuals must possess a fundamental level of knowledge about others and develop strategies to work with other individuals. Multiculturalism and diversity, as content areas in education and training opportunities, are of critical importance in our search for global understanding. The outcome of such content areas is to help learners relate personal belief systems and behaviors to the world and their place in the world. Integrating distance and mobile technologies instructional strategies helps to meet learners where they live, work, and play at times and places of needs. Innovative and, hopefully, motivating instructional strategies that promote engagement and active learning. Instructional strategies that integrate a variety of technologies permit the instructional technologist or educator the capability to craft an environment that is comprised of highly supportive, engaging virtual environments that promote dignity, respect, and understanding. In this chapter, we focus on strategies that can be delivered virtually, through online and mobile environments.
