Aim

Journal of Learning and Teaching in Digital Age (JOLTIDA) is an open access peer-reviewed international education journal that focuses on computer and internet technologies in education.

JOLTIDA’s ultimate mission is to establish new knowledge in education science and contribute to change the community’s view of the nature of education science in a positive way. To meet this goal, JOLTIDA pursue to significantly promote excellence in educational technology: i.e., dissemination of evidence-based, peer-reviewed insightful scientific information, discussion of timely controversial theoretical/practical issues, adherence to the publishing standards of journalistic integrity, ethics (Committee on Publication Ethics [COPE]; www.publicationethics.org.uk), and presentation excellence, and promotion of instructional technology’s perspectives to the education science community and the public.

JOLTIDA focuses on research and development of learning and teaching activities supported with digital technologies in K-12, higher education, and various learning environments. JOLTIDA welcomes research and development studies that aim to improve learning outcomes and teaching practices by integrating digital technologies into learning environments and learning and teaching activities. The types of studies include, but not limited to, experimental studies, case studies, needs assessments, developmental research, usability studies in K-12, higher education, and business training contexts with emphasis on improving learning outcomes and teaching practices for learners and professionals.

JOLTIDA is published twice a year (in January and July).

Scope

JOLTIDA disseminates state-of-the-art knowledge about education science in computer and internet technologies. Multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary in scope, original contributions related to new technologies in education are invited that

a.) describe completed empirical/theoretical research on educational/instructional technology,

b.) report on rigorous evaluations of computing technology innovations in education,

c.) present a synthesis of prior research that results in evidence-based recommendations for enhancement of educational/instructional technology, or

d.) present a critical commentary on an emerging issue of keen interest. The specific scopes include:

  • Adaptive and individual learning
  • ICT integration in classrooms
  • Computer and/or Internet technologies
  • Critical/Computational thinking
  • New issues in distance education
  • New theoretical/methodological issues in education
  • Technology/Teacher education
  • Human-computer interaction
