The Emperor's New Computer

ICT, Teachers and Teaching

Series:

Edited by Tony Di Petta

c ICT’s subtle and seductive impact on educational administration; globalisation; curriculum design, development and delivery; and teacher roles and responsibilities has challenged the privileged notion of how education in society is or should be delivered. Most schools and curricula require ICT enabled or supported courses as part of their mission or design. Yet the seeming ubiquitous adoption of ICT has not made the technology’s use any less controversial. There is much that is still puzzling and troubling about Information and Communication Technology and its impact on teachers and learners. The Emperor’s New Computer: ICT, Teaching and Learning presents nine chapters that reflect international points of view on the intersection of Information and Communication Technology and education, pose critical questions about ICT’s use and examine ways of navigating the complex paths that ICT has carved in all aspects of global education, society and culture.

Rethinking Education with ICT

New Directions for Effective Practices

Edited by Nicola Yelland, Greg A. Neal and Eva Dakich

This book brings together a number of academics who have conducted research and written about effective practices and pedagogies that incorporate the use of information and communications technologies (ICT). The book is intended for graduate and undergraduate students in Teacher Education programmes, as well as teachers and those who are interested in contemporary educational issues. The authors in this book have been engaged in rethinking education with ICT. Implicit in this, is the view that we need to reconceptualise our pedagogies and practices in order to make schools relevant to the lives of the young people who inhabit them. The chapters in this book are based on empirically grounded research work. The chapters illustrate the various dimensions of innovative practices with ICT that can extend teachers’ pedagogies and engage learners so that they are able to extend their potential for knowledge building in new and dynamic ways.
This is a fully Open Access journal, which means that all articles are freely available online, ensuring maximum, worldwide dissemination of content, in exchange for an Article Publication Charge. For more information visit the Brill Open dedicated webpage.

As the first-ever video journal of education and pedagogy, owned by the Association for Visual Pedagogies Inc (AVP), our aim is to initiate a new movement in education publishing. VJEP integrates visual approaches to educational research and practitioner knowledge concerning learning and teaching in its broadest sense. It facilitates the rapid spread of ideas and open access to video pedagogy demonstrations in an international and comparative context in an ‘author pays’ model that is based on institutional subscriptions. The VJEP provides a platform for cross-disciplinary research and demonstrated pedagogy while providing a ready means to capture and globally share practitioner knowledge. VJEP wants to establish a new frontier in education publishing and scientific communication and to promote the aims of the Association for Visual Pedagogies (AVP) which seeks to privilege all things visual in thought and practice.

In particular, the journal focuses on 3 main areas:

- Educational research at large, in all forms of education and pedagogy, containing a strong video/visual component. The video component must be outstanding either in the methodology, in the way data were collected, or results that are shown. This includes in particular:
o Teacher education
o Classroom teacher and child observation
o Workplace learning
oTechnology and social learning across multi-disciplinary domains of practice
- Visual approaches to educational research
o Research on new visualization methodologies
o Research and case-based studies to facilitate video data collection, dissemination, critical engagement and analysis
o Integrated approaches

- Research in visual and digital humanities, including philosophical reflection on the use of digital and visual resources in the humanities, particularly:
o Philosophical approaches in the study of visuality in education and society
o Other forms of visual pedagogy such as documentary, film and social media
o Cultural analytics, cultural studies and ethnography

VJEP will publish 10 articles per volume per year, including interviews and videos on teaching practice. The papers will be published online only at regular intervals to maintain the journal’s impact and each will have a video component. Manuscripts will be subject to a rigorous anonymous peer review process.
