JIME is a peer reviewed open access online journal in educational technology that focuses on the implications and use of digital media in education. It aims to foster a multidisciplinary and intellectually rigorous debate on both the theory and practice of interactive media in education. JIME was launched in September, 1996.
JIME is planning some exciting special collections in the forthcoming year so we are not currently accepting other submissions. The forthcoming special collections that we are planning are: on the themes of Open Education (submissions now closed- see below); Mobile Learning and Designing for Learning.
NOTE: JIME is planning some exciting special issues so we are currently not seeking unsolicited papers and will only be considering papers that are related to our advertised special issues. Please look out for future calls for papers.
The Journal of Interactive Media and Technology in Education (JIME) invites contributions for a special collection on Migrants, education and technologies to be published in December 2016. The current large scale migration across Europe has led to unprecedented interest in how we support migrants and refugees in their new homes, and a range of online and mobile services and resources have been developed for this purpose. Smartphones can be valuable tools in enabling inclusion, providing access to information resources and language learning (Kluzer et al. 2011) but many refugees only have basic phones, and do not use the internet due to cost and reliability issues. So how can technology support migrants and refugees in daily life?Submissions should have a clear educational focus or application, illuminating the special contribution that digital media can make to learners' knowledge, understanding or skill. Themes include but are not limited to:
Co-editors are: Ann Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org); Agnes Kukulska-Hulme (email@example.com) and Andrew Brasher (firstname.lastname@example.org). Abstracts, maximum 500 words, should be emailed to Ann Jones or Agnes Kukulska-Hulme, by the 30th June. Full papers should be submitted, September 1st 2016. Further details available here.
