Many of research domains are incorporated into education, such as Pedagogy, Educational psychology, Anthropology, Statistics, Information Science, Neuro science. Researchers use the technologies of these domains to enhance education such as enhance learning motivation, encourage active learning, and irritate critical thinking or creative thinking.

Educators have attempted to incorporate the existing educational theories while conducing emerging-technologies to enhance learning activities. With the development of emerging technologies, some new research trends appeared in education technology through the last several years. Such as Education Big Data, Flipped Classroom, Game-based Learning and Augmented Reality for Education.

The purpose of this special issue is to invite researchers who are engaged in studies to share and exchange their research experiences and findings of using emerging technologies to providing better teaching and learning.
