This showed up in my e-mail last week and I wanted to draw folks attention to the article about an online high school in Finland.
Full disclosure: I was one of the reviewers for this manuscript and while I suggested every international citation that I could think of, it does seem that they over relied upon citations from me.
Dear subscriber of the Human Technology e-notification service,

As noted above, a call for papers has recently been opened for a special issue: Human–Technology Choreographies: Body, movement, and space. The guest editors of this thematic issue (Antti Pirhonen, Kai Tuuri & Cumhu Erkut) seek submissions that emphasize intentional human movement in the physical and social “life-world” in which humans encounter technological and virtual artifacts. In regard to research in this area, the editors define choreography as meaningful continuums of movement that humans, as individuals or as groups, experience during interaction with technology. Manuscripts should be submitted for publication consideration by August 28, 2015, and further information is available at http://www.humantechnology.jyu.fi/call/call-for-papers-special-issue-CHORUS.html
Finally, the publisher and editors of Human Technology are proud to announce that the journal has beenawarded the peer-review label of the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies, and this label appears for the first time on the manuscripts in this issue. This designation acknowledges Human Technology’s commitment to high quality peer review for scholarly publishing of original research.
We ask that you please forward information on our journal to all of your colleagues who might be interested in the topics within this issue or in submitting a paper for either the thematic issue or for an open submissions issue of Human Technology.
