Focus of the Special Issue

The Innovating Pedagogy 2016 report claims that we are at the beginning of a learning revolution (i.e., a new era that builds and extends the impact of technology in learning in new and unanticipated ways). The goal of this special issue is to bring together different facets of emerging technologies and ground their use under the theoretical framework of constructionism. This special issue aims to include not only innovation on the use of different features of emerging technologies, but also on practices and strategies employed by practitioners and instructional designers as well as their impact on human behavior. This special issue is not constrained in the discipline of Technology-Enhanced Learning. Research on interface design, security concerns arising from the use of emerging technologies are also welcome.

Title of the Special Issue: Innovations and Technologies in Computational Thinking

Nowadays, students need to acquire skills and digital competences in accordance with 21st century needs. The ability to express ideas in a computationally meaningful way is gradually becoming one of the most essential skills for succeeding in the 21st century. Accordingly, computational thinking (CT) is considered as important as the skills of reading, writing, and arithmetic. In light of this growing recognition, ACM,, Computer Science Teachers Association, Cyber Innovation Center, and National Math and Science Initiative have developed conceptual guidelines for CT education. Research developments over the last few years have proposed new pedagogies, guidelines and resources for the development of computational thinking skills. Intuitive and student-friendly computer programming environments like Alice, Scratch, BlueJay, Greenfoot, Kodu, and educational robotics, as well as new standards and guidelines from CSTA/ACM and ISTE have been widely applied. However, despite the apparent growing body of research in the area, there is limited evidence to support the design of appropriate learning experiences to allow students to adequately develop computational thinking competences.

This special issue intends to attract contributions related to innovations and technologies to support the development of CT. Research areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Psychological factors affecting the development of CT
  • Adaptation and personalization in CT learning environments
  • Intelligent support systems for CT
  • Design of learning environments fostering CT
  • Learning analytics in CT
  • Informal learning experiences promoting CT
  • Empirical evidence from case studies and evaluation studies ranging from K-12, to tertiary, to lifelong CT education
  • Project-based learning/capstone projects in CT education
  • Gender equity in CT education
  • Experience with innovative pedagogies in learning or/and teaching CT
  • Cognitive and metacognitive support in developing CT skills
