Call for Papers: Mobile Technology, Learning, and Achievement: A Critical Perspective on the Role of Mobile Technology in Education

Mobile Technology Learning

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.

Guest editors:
– Matthew L. Bernacki, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
– Jeffrey A. Greene, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
– Helen Crompton, Old Dominion University

Deadline: May 15, 2018

Transitions_smallThis chapter discusses transitions towards learning at university from a perspective of regulation processes. The Integrated Model of Learning and Action is used to identity different patterns of motivational regulation amongst first-year students at university by using mixed distribution models. Five subpopulations of motivational regulation could be identified: students with self-determined, pragmatic, strategic, negative and anxious learning motivation. Findings about these patterns can be used to design didactic measures to support students’ learning processes.
