Technology, Knowledge and Learning
Technology, knowledge and learning is an international journal dedicated to understanding and enhancing the most profound changes to learning made possible by new technologies. It welcomes contributions that look in depth at innovative technologies and practices that make use of those technologies, novel theoretical approaches to understanding teaching and learning with technology, accounts of how new technologies reconfigure the social and epistemological aspects of learning, and analyses of the unique learning properties of digital technologies. The journal is open to contributions that span educational disciplines, with a particular emphasis on mathematics, science, and the arts.The advent of new technologies has dramatically transformed the fields of mathematics, science, and the arts. Within these disciplines, new technologies have not only reshaped practices, but they have also changed the very nature of what it means to know. In contrast, instruction in these disciplines has remained largely unchanged. It is widely recognized that digital technologies can make the lives of students and teachers easier, and that all children must acquire some facility with new technologies. But technology has the potential to transform learning in much more profound ways. The entry routes to disciplines, the kinds of activity open to students, the kinds of teacher-learner and learner-learner interaction available in the classroom, are all open to change. And, more profoundly, the potential exists to transform the very way we think of the disciplinary goals of learning and instruction.Submissions can be of two primary types, original research and computational snapshots. Original research papers may be theoretical or empirical, practical or visionary. Snapshots are short vignettes which illustrate how digital technologies can transform learning in mathematics, science, or the arts. We also accept reviews of software and books, as well as short letters t, o the editor. All submissions are refereed.
