The objectives of this Journal are to:

  • Contribute to critical dialogues in academic EdTech – the study, innovation and development of pedagogical practices in 21st-century education
  • Engage academic and non-academic stakeholder communities in dialogues relating to academic EdTech across a range of modalities, including traditional research and scholarship, academic essays, articles, opinion pieces and documentary films, as well as the curation of national and international dialogues, blogs and social media posts related to academic EdTech and pedagogic identities
  • Expand participation in, and consumption of, dialogues in academic EdTech studies
  • Contribute to innovation and transformation in curriculum design, the provision of teaching and learning, and related academic EdTech practices
  • Test the viability of interdisciplinary and digital knowledge production as well as content reproduction practices that intentionally operate across traditional disciplinary boundaries and through a range of digital modes and modalities

The vision is therefore to engender broader public and academic dialogues in pedagogical innovation by providing an accessible digital platform, in order to innovate, reimagine and transform teaching and learning through a range of research practices, active recontextualisations of existing work in the field, curated content and shared resources.
