Ask any teacher at any level of education – technology engages learners and animates their imagination. Technology stimulates minds in ways that make a profound and lasting difference. Indeed, technology, for many, is the most important new teaching strategy and learning style introduced in the past 50 years. Yet, the discipline is woefully lax in quantifiable and qualitative validation of successful learning outcomes. Learners with basic skills in reading, writing, and arithmetic master those skills better and faster with technology; yet the research is not there to defend how much better or how much faster these skills are acquired. Technology offers educators a way to adapt instruction to the needs of more diverse learners; still, such successes are not generalized across populations or content areas. Learners use technology to acquire and organize information evidence to obtain a higher level of comprehension; but we are not sure why. The purpose of the International Journal of Information and Communication Technology Education (IJICTE) is to grow this body of research, propose new applications of technology for teaching and learning, and document those practices that contribute irrefutable verification of information technology education as a discipline.

Reviews and Testimonials

The IJICTE will open horizons for technology educators giving them a broader perspective of how technology serves the needs of an expanding and increasingly diverse customer base. In addition, IJICTE will focus the awareness of technology educators on the commonalities shared among the various disciplines that claim technology as a content area to be mastered and as tools for teaching and learning to be implemented.

With an increasing body of research indicating that the learning outcomes of distance education are similar to those of classroom-based courses it is crucial to understand how Information and Communications Technologies can be better used to enhance education on both fronts. This new journal offers a well-timed opportunity to discuss, explore, evaluate and understand developments in this critical field.

As we strive to integrate technology into various learning environments, it is important to be knowledgeable about the changing domains of technology. We need to know more about how we can communicate and collaborate with our global partners. The International Journal of Information and Communication Technology Education is a valuable resource to help us learn more about our world-wide technology and communication capabilities and how we can infuse them into novel approaches to teach and to learn.

– Lawrence Tomei, Robert Morris University, USA

The International Journal of Information and Communication Technoloy Education is the only journal addressing the issues of the rational and productive use of technology in education at all levels. Each issue is a multidisciplinary window on how technology can be used in an increasingly learning-centered world.

– William Grosky, University of Michigan-Dearborn, USA

Nowadays technological tools have an outstanding influence on information and communication areas, representing a key factor for the survival and development of all kinds of today's organizations. Hence, one must consider that a goal of any organization is to be updated in such fields through reliable sources contributed to and reviewed by leading researchers and practitioners. The International Journal of Information and Communication Technology Education is an important means to obtain such goal.
