Theme: Digital kids, innovation, and stone-age schools
Deadline for submissions: June 15, 2010
Publication month: December 2010/January 2011
This issue of Kappan will explore topics related to how classrooms employ new technologies for learning and how new technologies outside the classroom are influencing learning and learners. Kappan editors are interested in reviewing a broad range of manuscripts that address this topic. Some of the questions that interest us are these:
- Do new technologies change how students learn? Do they change how students read and write, study, or think? What important attitudes and skills are lost or improved in the shift to new technologies?
- What’s the future of online student and professional learning? Do the standards change when new forms of technology are available?
- What’s the next wave of technology? How will it change what we believe about teaching and learning?
- When schools embrace new technology, does student learning improve? Where are there examples of this?
- What should schools avoid when confronted with new technologies?
- What legal and ethical issues are raised by new technologies?
