CFP - special issue of NRHM

Douglas Tudhope, the editor of the New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia invites paper for the special issue on Studying the Users of Digital Education Technologies: Theories, Methods, and Analytical Approaches.

This special issue of NRHM addresses issues associated with the qualitative understanding of the use of digital educational technologies in real-life contexts (with a focus on digital libraries, broadly conceived), by emphasizing the importance of contextual sociotechnical studies of technology use and design. The issue will consider educational technologies as complex mixtures of people, practices and technologies, embedded in a range of institutional, technological and social contexts. The editor therefore invites contributions that address the qualitative and sociotechnical study of digital educational technologies and users 'in the wild.'
