Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the rapid development of technologies and fast changes in the global environment, the roles of technologies in education are ever-changing. The effective integration of technology into the teaching and learning of science concepts and related skills is always one of the dominant areas of science education. From COVID-19 to post-COVID-19, the challenges, opportunities, and experiences of researchers, science educators, practitioners, and scholars in the research, pedagogy, and practices of science education should be very educational and unique, and thereby worth sharing. It is time for us to communicate these changing experiences with different stakeholders in the field of educational technology, science education, and learning sciences. Such communication and sharing are intended to motivate reflections on the progress of research in technology-enabled science education and provide new visions and clear directions for the future study of new pedagogies and practices. This Special Issue will address the pedagogical innovations of technology-enhanced learning and practices of integrating new/emerging technologies in science education in formal and informal learning contexts.

Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Emerging technologies (i.e., AI, VR, AR) in science education;
  2. e-learning tools (i.e., mobile learning tools, learning management systems, assessment tools, simulations, scientific modelling tools) in science education;
  3. Pedagogical design and implementation of technology-enhanced science education;
  4. Coding education and computational thinking in science education;
  5. Computer-supported collaboration in science education;
  6. Mobile technology-supported science education;
  7. Technology-supported science learning in blended learning contexts;
  8. Technology-supported science learning informal contexts.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Sustainability.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Education Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
