International Journal of Learning and Media

International Journal of Learning and Media


The International Journal of Learning and Media (IJLM) provides a forum for scholars, researchers, and practitioners to examine the changing relationships between learning and media across a wide range of forms and settings. Our focus is particularly, but by no means exclusively, on young people, and we understand learning in broad terms to include informal and everyday contexts as well as institutions such as schools. We are especially interested in the broader social and cultural dimensions of these issues and in new and emerging media technologies, forms, and practices. We are particularly keen to promote international and intercultural exchange and dialogue in the field and encourage contributions from a variety of academic disciplines and perspectives, including papers from practitioners and policy-makers. Through scholarly articles, editorials, case studies, and an active online network, IJLM seeks to provide a premier forum for emerging interdisciplinary research and debate and to help shape the development of the field around the world. We publish contributions that address the theoretical, textual, historical, and sociological dimensions of media and learning, as well as the practical and political issues at stake. While retaining the peer review process of a traditional academic journal, we also provide opportunities for more topical and polemical writing, for visual and multimedia presentations, and for online dialogues. The journal is supported through the MacArthur Foundation's program on Digital Media and Learning. The journal builds on six "state of the art" volumes of research in the field published by The MIT Press early in 2008. All submissions will be evaluated based on originality, correctness, relevance, and readability.
The scope of the journal is broad and ambitious, and we intend to push beyond the confines of traditional disciplinary approaches. This includes the publication of work in non-traditional, media-rich formats that might embed still images, video, audio, or experiment with non-linear writing and/or other forms of interactivity. We envisage topics to include, but not be limited to:

  • shifting notions of literacy and participation
  • media and civic engagement
  • historical perspectives on media and learning
  • digital divides and participation gaps
  • identity, media, and learning
  • changing views of creativity and innovation
  • technologies of the imagination
  • media literacy and media education
  • representation, race, and ethnicity
  • designing learning environments
  • the political economy of media and education
  • social and cultural dimensions of media and learning
  • DIY and participatory media
  • children's culture and youth culture
  • new approaches to assessment
  • games and learning
  • generational conflicts and connections
  • theories of technology, learning, and culture
  • policy and regulatory issues
  • rethinking media production and consumption
  • media in the classroom
  • lifelong learning
  • media, play, and learning
