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.

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 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.

All schools in Turkey have quickly entered into the process of distance education because of the Covid-19 outbreak. In this process, mathematics teachers have become an associate of this process to teach math lessons at a distance. The subject of the current study is the experiences of teachers in this process of distance teaching of math, which is a compulsory subject in all secondary schools. The participants of the current study designed as a narrative study are 15 math teachers experienced on the subject. As a result of the study, a total of five super-themes emerged. The first super-theme includes codes related to the general structure of the math course. The second super-theme is theme of hardware and Web 2.0 tools. This sub-theme includes codes related to their experiences of EBA TV, EBA Internet and other alternative tools of distance education. The third sub-theme is the Socio Cultural super theme. This theme is consisted of sub-codes including political issues, state of the student, state of the parent and socio-economic situations. The fourth sub- theme includes the codes related to psychological states arising from the extraordinary situation emerging in the pandemic (period of pandemic, cyber bullying, emotional links). The fifth sub-theme is related to the readiness of teachers.
