Call for Submissions: Special Issue on “Technology in the Classroom”

The IAFOR Journal of Education is calling for submissions for a special issue on “Technology in the Classroom”, to be published in 2017.


  • Dr Bernard Montoneri, Tamkang University, Taiwan
  • Dr Lucy K. Spence, University of South Carolina, USA

Submission deadline: June 1, 2017

The aim of this special issue is to discuss the use of technologies in the classroom and address the challenges of using emerging technologies in the classroom. It notably includes the use of social media, online platforms, MOOCs or flipped classroom, but also holographic technologies, RFID and digital instructional materials.

While some technologies are useful, others such as fingerprinting, facial recognition, iris patterns and RFID might cause privacy concerns. However, in terms of education, some schools are currently only using fingerprinting to prevent truancy and for borrowing books from their school library.

How to Submit

We encourage you to send your manuscript (as a Word file), along with the Special Issue submission form, via the Manuscript Submission Form page. Please read the information on the journal homepage and follow the journal’s Author Guidelines before submitting your paper.

We look forward to receiving your submissions. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the journal editors or the IAFOR Publications Team.
