Ubiquitous Learning: An International Journal sets out to define an emerging field. Ubiquitous learning is a new educational paradigm made possible in part by the affordances of digital media.
Ubiquitous learning is a counterpart to the concept “ubiquitous computing,” but one which seeks to put the needs and dynamics of learning ahead of the technologies that may support learning. The arrival of new technologies does not mean that learning has to change. Learning should only change for learning’s sake. The key perspective of the conference and journal is that our changing learning needs can be served by ubiquitous computing. In this spirit, the journal investigates the affordances for learning in the digital media, in school, and throughout everyday life.
Inspired by the 2018 e-Learning & Innovative Pedagogies conference, this special issue of Ubiquitous Learning: An International Journal focuses on social justice related to pedagogies, institutions, technologies, and/or social transformations. Authors are encouraged to address issues related to social justice and equity, including, but not limited to, access, (missed) opportunities, (in)justice, inclusion/exclusion, citizenship, community, and poverty/economics. Building a culture of respect and understanding is an important goal, and proposals should address how the manuscript will advance pedagogy, theory, and/or practice.
Authors should send an abstract (no more than 500 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 1, 2018. Please include a working title for your manuscript, as well as indicate author name(s), affiliation(s), and lead author contact information. If accepted for inclusion in this special issue, authors will be notified by July 30, 2018. More details about the special issue can be found below. Questions about the special issue and/or submission protocols should be sent to email@example.com.
