Call for Papers

A new wave of technologies is disrupting innovation in the education sector now more than ever before. Phenomena and technologies such as learning analytics, cloud computing, maker spaces, 3-D printing, wearable technologies, cognitive profiling and augmented reality are just a few examples that have seen early adopters bringing new hope and optimism to the debate about the usefulness and relevance of new technologies and learning support. At the same time, new standards are also emerging with the intention of bringing these innovations to a level where they are widely accepted and sustainable. Such rapid growth of the field is not without mixed blessings, as it changes the ways that people access, design, deploy and support learning, posing challenges for educational organisations, researchers, practitioners and policy makers, especially with regard to the development of advanced technologies that accommodate the needs of a new generation of learners and a changing social environment. The choice of appropriate technologies and their application in emerging learning contexts are huge challenges for 21st century learning technologists.
