Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy Call for Submissions: Digital Pedagogy Tools, Digital Research Tools, Assignments, and Reviews (ongoing/rolling deadline)

Sunday, January 7, 2018 - 4:02pm
Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 1, 2018

The mission of The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy (ISSN 2166-6245) is to promote open scholarly discourse around critical and creative uses of digital technology in teaching, learning, and research. Educational institutions have often embraced instrumentalist conceptions and market-driven implementations of technology that overdetermine its uses in academic environments. Such approaches underestimate the need for critical engagement with the integration of technological tools into pedagogical practice. The JITP counters these trends by recentering questions of pedagogy in our discussions of technology in higher education.

From Center to Periphery and from Periphery to Center: An Inter-Culture exchange

During most of the 20th century, academia knowledge was circulated in the world on a path parallel with Western countries’ political and economic dominance. Western experts were sent out into the world by their native country or by international institutions to share or impose their findings on other countries in the areas of literature, linguistics and the teaching of foreign languages. This is what we might call a diffusion of knowledge from center to periphery. There were some exceptions to this Western dominance but not many.

Digital Minds in Analogic Bodies: Nigerian Media Practices and Permanent Transition

updated:

Digital Permanent Residents
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2018

Nigerian print and electronic media were beset by a revenue crisis in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In the context of structural adjustment of the country’s economy, the so-called Fourth Estate became a victim of its own success when its century-long visionary pursuit of democracy and social justice could no longer be sustained by old expectations based on circulation and advertisement. That apparent economic crisis was exacerbated by political problems arising from draconian military practices of rule, censorship, direct intimidation, and the corruption or cooptation of media ethics.
