The Journal of Educational Computing Research is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary scholarly journal that publishes the latest in research reports and critical analyses on educational computing for both theorists and practitioners. The Journal addresses four primary areas of research interests:
- The outcome effects of educational computing applications, featuring findings from a variety of disciplinary perspectives which include the social, behavioral, physical, and computational sciences;
- The design, development, and effectiveness of innovative computer hardware and software for use in educational environments;
- The interpretation and implications of research in educational computing fields;
- The theoretical and historical foundations of computer-based education.
The terms ""education"" and ""computing"" are viewed broadly. “Education” refers to the use of computer-based technologies at all levels of the formal education system, business and industry, home-schooling, lifelong learning, and unintentional learning environments.
“Computing” refers to all forms of computer applications and innovations - both hardware and software. For example, this could range from mobile and ubiquitous computing to immersive 3D simulations and games to computing-enhanced virtual learning environments. Each issue features articles useful for practitioners and theorists alike.
