While financial resources for basic research in educational technology continue to decline worldwide, there is a greater realization that the benefits of academic research in this field need to flow into wider community, aiming to provide evidences for its added value to the global societal demand for transformations in education and learning. Two major directions of such deployment initiatives are emerging, namely large scale implementations of academic research in real-life educational settings and efficient academia-industry collaboration projects for knowledge and technology transfer to all major stakeholders (including, policy makers, educational organizations and leaders, teachers, learners and parents).
Journal of Educational Technology & Society invites original and unpublished articles in the following areas:
* Research articles and case studies documenting large scale implementations of educational technology initiatives
* Success stories and lessons learned from academia-industry collaboration initiatives for knowledge and technology transfer
While the articles are expected to be grounded into evidence, authors are encouraged to put greater focus on their reflections of the experiences, and articulating guidelines for the benefits of others who would like to undertake similar efforts from their own research projects.
Interested authors are invited to submit full papers by 15 September 2014 using EasyChair system at:
The papers should be no more than 7000 words each and should be formatted as per the author guidelines available at the ETS website:
