Innovative as well as inspirational. The editors and reviewers are definitely first rate scholars in the field.

– Stanton Wortham, University of Pennsylvania, USA

I congratulate you on your leadership and vision for having conceived of, generated, and published the new informative and enlightening journal, International Journal of Adult Vocational Education and Technology. It fills a much needed void in the production and dissemination of knowledge about adult vocational education and technology. Our global community of scholars and practitioners in adult and vocational education will greatly benefit from this new source of research-based and field tested research about the critical role of technology in the practice of adult and vocational education in many different institutional/agency and environmental/social-cultural contexts.
