Advances in Information, communication and interactive technology have made it possible to reach out to a wider audience around the globe. However, the solutions/systems developed for this purpose are not always fit for purpose. Interactive Technology and Smart Education (ITSE) is a multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed journal, which provides a distinct forum to specially promote innovation and participative research approaches. It also encourages discussion of research approaches that explore innovative use of educational technologies that have emerged from Multimedia and Social Software to advance innovation in interactive technology in general and its applications in education in particular. The journal also promotes design research, action research, and continuous evaluation as an integral part of the development cycle of usable solutions/systems (rather than a final stage in the development cycle). By bringing together these specialist fields, the journal aims to bridge an existing gap in interactive technology and educational technology research, which would help advance innovation in these areas.
For the sake of clarity, the following terms are defined, as used in the context of this journal: Interactive Technology refers to all forms of digital technology, as described above, emphasizing innovation and human-/user-centred approaches. Smart Education "SMART" is used as an acronym that refers to interactive technology that offers a more flexible and tailored approach to meet diverse individual requirements by being “Sensitive, Manageable, Adaptable, Responsive and Timely” to educators’ pedagogical strategies and learners’ educational and social needs.
So, in summary, the journal addresses two broad themes:
Contributions are solicited in any of the two main broad themes - interactive technology and SMART education - covered individually or combined, include, but are not limited to the following topics:
