The Australasian Journal of Educational Technology (AJET) has just released a Call for Papers for a special issue to be published in early 2019, entitled “Re-Examining Cognitive Tools: New Developments, New Perspectives, and New Opportunities for Educational Technology Research”. The special issue seeks to rekindle and re-energise scholarly interest in, and dialogue around, the concept of educational technologies as cognitive tools for learning, with a particular focus on higher education and other post-secondary education contexts. A major goal is to encourage researchers and practitioners to take a fresh look at the concept and its possible applications in light of developments in not only technology, but also learning theory, pedagogy, instructional design, cognitive science, and psychology, that have taken place since the concept was first popularised in the early 1990s.
The guest editors of the special issue are Christopher Drew and Mark J. W. Lee.
While full manuscripts are not due until 1 August 2018, prospective authors are strongly encouraged to make initial contact with the guest editors well ahead of that date (ideally prior to June 2018), providing them with a brief proposal or abstract outlining the nature, content, and aims of the article they intend to submit.
The full Call for Papers is available at https://goo.gl/7mc7Uh .
Queries may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org . However, kindly note that manuscripts are *not* to be sent to this address (see the Call for Papers for submission instructions).
