New: The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy

The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy is a new journal with a first issue expected in September 2011. The journal is open access and, according to the website:

The mission of The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy 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 will endeavor to counter these trends by recentering questions of pedagogy in our discussions of technology in higher education. The journal will also work to change what counts as scholarship — and how it is presented, disseminated, and reviewed — by allowing contributors to develop their ideas, publish their work, and engage their readers using multiple formats. JITP will be published in an open-access digital format beginning in September 2011. We invite submissions for the premiere and future issues.

  1. Hi. I just wanted to thank you for linking to Points: The Blog of the Alcohol and Drugs History Society. I’m Amy, one of its contributing editors and its media liaison; I’m also its obsessive stats-watcher, and I noticed a link coming in from your site. It looks quite interesting. We don’t yet have a blogroll or anything like that, as we just started out in February and are still getting the hang of things, but if we decide to use one, we will add you to it!
    Thanks again,

  2. In approving a recent comment, I just noticed that the comment here might not make sense to folks. I added “Points: The Blog of the Alcohol and Drugs History Society” to my blog roll. It’s a shared academic blog/journal/new-form-aca-publication and one of the folks involved is a faculty member I’ve worked with to support digital humanities internships at the University of Florida and so “Points” is of interest for future collaboration with the interns, other projects, and on its own for its innovative form. I know blogs may seem old-school to some people, but academic blogs are still experimenting and still changing conceptions and practices of academic discourse, so it’s very cool. The “Points” blog is here:
