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.

Special Issue of the Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning:
Encountering the Natural World: Environmental Education in the Arts and Humanities
Call for Chapters: Dark Tourism and Pilgrimage
Daniel H. Olsen, Brigham Young University
Maximiliano Korstanje, University of Palmero
In recent years there has been a growth in the academic literature related to travel to sites related to tragedy and death. Labeled as dark tourism or thanatourism, this research has focused on typologizing dark tourism supply and demand, the ethical considerations regarding the commodification of death, as the ways in which death and tragedy are presented to a post-modern consumer society, and how dark tourism sites can be used for reconciliation and healing.
