Newest issue of Human Technology is now online.

Note this table of contents update.

Dear Subscriber,

I apologize if this message is a duplicate for you, although I suspect you never received it when I dispatched it in June. (I have been away for several weeks and did not see that it was “undeliverable.”) So I am resending it, in hopes that it will now arrive in your inbox safely. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Cordially,

Barbara

Dear subscriber of the Human Technology e-notification service,

The newest issue of Human Technology now has been published. This is an open submissions issue, although two papers were originally submitted to the thematic issue that was published last November. We also include our biennial public acknowledgment of those dedicated academics who have served as reviewers for our journal for the past two years. Use the link www.humantechnology.jyu.fi/archive/ for access to all the components from this issue.

Please note that this is the final issue to be published by the Open Science Centre, University of Jyväskylä, Finland. The journal is moving to a new publisher (Centre for Sociological Research, in Poland) within the next month or so. I will be back in touch in a few weeks to provide instructions on how you can continue to receive notifications regarding published issues—as well as a new address on where to submit manuscripts for publication consideration.

Until then, enjoy reading this issue and, for those readers in the Northern Hemisphere, have a lovely summer.

Newest Issue Of Human Technology

A new issue notice, although I didn’t see any K-12 distance, online, and/or blended learning articles when I scanned the abstracts.

Dear subscriber of the Human Technology e-notification service,

We editors of Human Technology are pleased to announce the publication our newest issue of the journal: the first issue of volume 16. The papers published in this issue were submitted by authors as part of our open submissions process. As is typical with open submissions issues, the topics and approaches of the papers vary in topic, but all address aspects of humans interaction with technology. Our authors—like our readers—literally are from around the world. One paper addresses the challenges that smartphone interfaces present to older users, and another explored the use of technology, in the form of game-like learning environment, for assisting new readers of a transparent written language. The final two papers explore perceptions of technology use—one for potentially extending therapeutic care within and beyond the face-to-face sessions and the other of university students assessing their teachers’ integrating and role modeling technology use in higher education curricula.

In addition to the four original papers, this issue includes an editorial by the current editor in chief. In his editorial, Dr. Jouhki addresses the tensions—and sometimes society-altering perspectives—that occur when new technologies tread on the uses of old and established practices and products.

Newest Issue Of Human Technology Now Available

I don’t see any K-12 distance, online, and/or blended learning item in this issue, but several interesting papers in this open access journal all the same.

Dear subscriber of the Human Technology e-notification service,

The current issue of Human Technology is now online. The papers published in this issue cover a range of topics. The first paper is a narrative literature review of the growing literature addressing the intersection of migrants (of many kinds) with a diversity of social media and online communication; in the next, the author reports on an ethnographic analysis of issues related to politics, women’s engagement in politics, and women’s agency in rural India following the introduction of mobile phones; and the their paper explores the role of photographs in online dating and how early profile photos have a character of “future tense” while later uses of photography to build relationships provides means for couples to maintain contact, particularly in situations whereh the photos are shared immediately after contact. The other three open submissions address diverse topics: serious game design in learning how learners progress through the games, specifically, GraphoGame; deeper understanding of problematic mobile phone and social media behaviors in emerging adults, as well the practices of pubbing, creeping, and catfishing; and how years of teaching experience and teachers’ constructivist beliefs impact how likely they are to incorporate ICTs in their classrooms.

In addition to the six manuscripts, this issue includes an editorial by the current editor in chief regarding how the 50th anniversary of the moon landing provides an opportunity to consider the appartgeist concept and whether humankind can ever experience again a worldwide focus and appreciation of success in a mammoth technological undertaking. Finally, book review discusses the intermingling of information, data, technology, and organization—both positively and negatively—in contemporary societies.
