Call for papers for a special issue of Computers in the Schools, focusing on Research on One-to-One Learning
The special issue will be edited by Dr. William A. Sadera and Dr. Liyan Song.
One-to-one computing is a learning environment where every learner is provided a personal computing device. There is an increasing number of one-to-one computing initiatives worldwide and the topic is gaining significant attention. However, there is limited consistency in the research findings. Further research needs to be done to better understand the impact and inform practice. Therefore, we invite you to submit a manuscript for consideration of this special issue. Quantitative research, qualitative research, best practice, literature review, meta analysis and position papers are all acceptable. You may contact the editors to discuss the topic/area of your manuscript, if needed.
Submissions can address a variety of issues and aspects of one-to-one learning in education, including:
· Professional development and training;
· Implementation of one-to-one initiative;
· Professional development and training for the one-to-one classroom;
· Pedagogical issues associated with one-to-one learning;
· Social and ethical issues in one-to-one learning;
· Best practices or cases in one-to-one learning;
· Assessment on one-to-one learning;
· Curriculum Standards and one-to-one learning.
· Leadership and administration in one-to-one learning
