Chamada: Call for paper 2020.3 - Learning technologies

Learning technologies: theories, methodologies and didactic processes to favour the learning of 21st century students

 

The editorial team of Texto Livre invites scholars from all disciplines to contribute to its issue on learning technologies. The issue aims to focus on technologies that are being applied to improve student learning. We are looking for articles that deal with emerging technological resources, theories, methodologies and didactic processes with technology.

Learning technologies are key to the teaching and learning of 21st century students. The teaching paradigm has changed, with the student as the main focus of learning. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) help the development of the premises of active and self-regulated learning, since they allow the adaptation of learning to the particular characteristics of the students.

In recent years different ICT-based learning methodologies have emerged such as e-learning, blended learning, flipped classroom or mobile learning. For this special issue it is of interest to have contributions that include key aspects of these methodologies, as well as emerging technologies such as mixed reality, artificial intelligence, Blockchain, telepresence, Internet of Things (IoT), analytical technologies, virtual assistants, among other trends highlighted in the 2019 Horizon Report (ALEXANDER et al. 2019).

Therefore, we encourage the scientific community of educational technology experts to contribute to this valuable issue on learning technologies.
