Alan Amtzis, academic editor of "The Educational Forum", advises:
The Educational Forum, Kappa Delta Pi’s premier educational research journal, is seeking articles for its upcoming Fall 2012 theme issue on “New Literacies” and its relationship to teaching, learning and other major educational dimensions. The Educational Forum is an international, peer-reviewed journal whose mission is to “publish compelling research findings and thought-provoking perspectives as a catalyst for stimulating and encouraging research and dialogue and for advancing and transforming education.”
The Educational Forum is seeking original empirical research and conceptual essays that address the ways in which contemporary understanding of “New Literacies” are enacted in educational settings from pre-K to adult learning [with a focus on]how technological and other contemporary developments ... have (or have not) influenced the work, lives and thinking of teachers, students and others involved in education. Papers that address the reciprocal relationship of “New Literacies” to classroom practices are of particular interest.
