Call for Papers: Mobile Technology, Learning, and Achievement: A Critical Perspective on the Role of Mobile Technology in Education
The purpose of this special issue of Contemporary Educational Psychology (CEP) is to rigorously investigate the affordances and challenges of mobile and wearable technologies as platforms for both measuring and inducing processes that foster achievement and learning. Such tools hold great promise as a way to collect online, measures of learner functioning, from non-intrusive biometrics through direct-contact interaction data. They also can serve as educational tools, prompting learners as well as affecting the learning environment. At the same time, mobile technology presents new challenges and new hindrances to effective education, particularly when such technology is used without grounding in learning and learning theory.
