How can she trust him with her heart when he’s built a career on make-believe? Eliza Moore’s safe, sweet online romance is exactly what she wants. Mostly. She’s been burned in the past, so she ignores her longing for a man she can see and touch. Introducing reality to her fantasy relationship would ruin it. Joaquin Cortez plays the part of a celebrity during the day and at night, he escapes into a virtual relationship with the only woman he’s ever shown the real man behind the curtain. Ironic since she has no idea she’s been chatting with a Hollywood A-Lister. When fate lands them face to face on the set of a movie, their chemistry is instant. Undeniable. Impossible. Falling for each other is a complete and utter betrayal of the person on the other side of their computer screens. Isn’t it?

New Tools, Infrastructures and Practices
Author: Sten R. Ludvigsen,Andreas Lund,Ingvill Rasmussen,Roger Säljö
The ever evolving, technology-intensive nature of the twenty-first century workplace has caused an acceleration in the division of labour, whereby work practices are becoming highly specialised and learning and the communication of knowledge is in a constant state of flux. This poses a challenge for education and learning: as knowledge and expertise increasingly evolve, how can individuals be prepared through education to participate in specific industries and organisations, both as newcomers and throughout their careers? Learning Across Sites brings together a diverse range of contributions from leading international researchers to examine the impacts and roles which evolving digital technologies have on our navigation of education and professional work environments. Viewing learning as a socially organised activity, the contributors explore the evolution of learning technologies and knowledge acquisition in networked societies through empirical research in a range of industries and workplaces. The areas of study include public administration, engineering, production, and healthcare and the contributions address the following questions: How are learning activities organised? How are tools and infrastructures used? What competences are needed to participate in specialised activities? What counts as knowledge in multiple and diverse settings? Where can parallels be drawn between workplaces? Addressing an emerging problem of adaptation in contemporary education, this book is essential reading for all those undertaking postgraduate study and research in the fields of educational psychology, informatics and applied information technology.
This book empowers people to go beyond themselves into new spheres of learning, thinking and creativity. Drawing on recent work in communications theory as well as psychology, computer science and philosophy, it reveals some key characteristics of learning dialogues. It also demonstrates ways in which computers and networks can deepen, enrich and expand such dialogues. The book’s central argument is that this dialogic perspective in education and the latest developments in information and communications technology make ideal partners.
