Research Trends in Instructional Technology

The International Journal of Information and Learning Technology invites submissions for a special issue focusing on research that highlights current and emerging trends in the field of instructional technology. From the use of big data to support student success, to the implementation of one-to-one tablet programs in school districts, to a growing interest in coding for all, emerging trends in the field point to possibilities and challenges for educational researchers and practitioners.

In this special issue, we are interested in exploring how technologies are used to support teaching and student learning in K-12 and higher education settings. We encourage the submission of manuscript types including literature reviews; reports of original research (quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods); and theoretical perspectives.

 - Learning Analytics
 - Gamification and Game-Based Learning
 - Mobile Learning
 - Teaching and Learning in One-to-One Environments
 - Robotics and Computational Thinking
