We are pleased to invite you to submit your research to this Special Issue of Education Sciences, entitled “Applications of Emerging Educational Technologies in Digital Pedagogies”.
Emerging technologies have afforded new ways to engage and support learning. With rapid advancements in technologies, such as extended reality (XR), artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT), alongside the rise of more sophisticated digital platforms, such as mobile technology and social media, learning has been transformed by educators embracing these new technologies and associated approaches to teaching and learning. These new approaches (such as design thinking, agile and lean techniques, and crowdsourcing) have also been adopted to help implement new ways of teaching and learning where the roles of the learner are reframed and learning are becoming increasingly student-driven. The integration of digital technology has also started to be reframed where critical digital and multimedia literacies are needed to help support learners better engage and navigate an increasingly digital society. Learning is moving away from digital technology being simply consumed by students to an environment where learners are supported in developing and designing digital outcomes for themselves and for others.
Underpinning the integration of new technology and approaches, new pedagogies are needed to support the creative and effective integration of technology into learning. This Special Issue aims to explore the plethora of new applications and approaches driven by educational technology exploring effective digital pedagogies from a variety of philosophical perspectives. We are seeking original research articles and literature reviews that explore the innovative programs, practices, methods and projects designed to integrate digital technology across the full spectrum of education (preschool, K12, higher education, formal and informal learning) are welcome.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Immersive technology used to support teaching and learning, incl eXtended Reality (AR, VR, MR),
- IOT and AI in education
- Web 2.0, Web 3.0, and Social Media
- Emerging practices in mobile, online, blended learning
- Innovative approaches to incorporate digital technology, incl Design Thinking, Agile, Lean, Crowdsourcing, STEAM
- Design-Based Research into digital pedagogies
- Affordance analysis and design principles
- Digital literacies incl, digital citizenship and computational thinking
- New and emerging learning theories and pedagogies
- Philosophical and theoretical perspectives on educational technology
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
