BJET Special Section Publication

Following the conference, a special section of the British Journal of Educational Technology (BJET) (Impact Factor: 2.729) will be published early 2021 entitled Constructionism Moving Forward, to showcase the best scholarly work presented at Constructionism 2020 in Dublin.

An open call for proposals will be published on the journal website in due course but we wanted you to be the first to know!

All submissions to the conference (papers, posters, workshops, etc.) are invited to have their  submission considered as a proposal for inclusion in the special section. Please check the box on the conference submission form.

Details:

  • Submission length: 6,000 words
  • Deadline: 29th June 2020
  • Up to 2,000 words from the original conference submission can be included but should also be expanded upon.  For example, expanded literature review; methods repeated but with more detail on the analysis approach; additional findings etc.
  • Contributions may include theoretical perspectives, methodological developments and high quality empirical research that demonstrate whether and how applications of instructional/educational technology systems, networks, tools and resources lead to improvements in formal and non-formal education at all levels, from early years through to higher, technical and vocational education, professional development and corporate training.
  • All submissions must contribute to our growing understanding of constructionism and the role of technology.
  • Within this, topics are not limited but should provide an innovative perspective.

We hope to have as many as possible developed into full journal articles.  If you would like to discuss ideas or have any questions about the special section, please contact Jake Byrne or Carina Girvan.
