Call for Papers for a special issue in Computers in Human Behavior

“Emerging Technologies for Artifact Construction in Learning”
------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------
It is our pleasure to announce the call for papers for the special
issue in Computers in Human Behavior journal titled “Emerging
Technologies for Artifact Construction in Learning”.  Submissions are
invited on studies that delineate how constructionism and social
constructionism can ground the use of emerging technologies for
learning.

FOCUS OF THE SPECIAL ISSUE
The Innovating Pedagogy 2016 report claims that we are at the
beginning of a learning revolution (i.e., a new era that builds and
extends the impact of technology in learning in new and unanticipated
ways). The goal of this special issue is to bring together different
facets of emerging technologies and ground their use under the
theoretical framework of constructionism. This special issue aims to
include not only  innovation on the use of different features of
emerging technologies, but also on practices and strategies employed
by practitioners and instructional designers as well as their impact
on human behavior. This special issue is not constrained in the
discipline of Technology-Enhanced Learning. Research on interface
design, security concerns arising from the use of emerging
technologies are also welcome.

MOTIVATION FOR THE SI
Many recent well-known successful educational activities around the
world rely on emerging technologies such as social media, virtual and
augmented reality, embodied technologies and mobile applications and
their impact on human behavior. This special issue echoes the growing
research trend towards innovations in the use of emerging technologies
and makes an effort to delineate how constructionism and social
constructionism ground their use. Constructionism was chosen as a
theory of learning, teaching, and design that aligns well with the
demands and expectations of computational culture, and emphasizes
building, creating and making of shared and meaningful artifacts as a
means for gaining knowledge (Papert, 1980; 1993).

POSSIBLE TOPICS OF INTEREST
This special issue will welcome contributions on the following, though
not exhaustive, list of topics:

- How can emerging technologies embody constructionist/social
constructionist elements and transform educational activities?

- How can different features of emerging technologies support the
construction of an artifact that can be meaningful to its
constructors?

- How do learners engage in meaningful artifact construction within
different emerging technologies?

- What behavioral patterns do learners display in a
constructionist/social constructionist environment?

TIMELINE FOR SUBMISSION
Submission portal will be open from 15th November 2017 to 30th April 2018
Submission deadline: 30th April 2018
Author notification: September 30th, 2018
Final approval by Editor-in-chief: November 31st, 2018
Expected publication date: Early 2019
