Abstract

When discussing emerging educational technologies, the complaint around the globe is common enough: we may be outfitting schools with classrooms of the future, but teaching methods remain mired in the past. In this special issue of the International Journal of Information and Communication Technology Education, fresh perspectives for choosing and applying emerging educational technologies are presented as a result of the efforts of this investigation. Many well-respected experts have addressed the need for new methodologies. Instead, we have chosen to focus on the process of choosing the technologies themselves. We set out to determine how to evaluate the individual promise an educational technology may hold and to provide guidelines to those who choose and use the technologies for teaching and learning.
