This is general - but this shared events calendar has both events, and calls for proposals from an international community of Ed. Tech people:


The direct URL to the calendar is: or

The ICAL address to subscribe to this calendar somewhere else, such as in Outlook, Eudora, Google Calendar etc. is:


Reply to me personally ( with your email address that is associated with your or any Google account so that I can add you as a contributor.

You will then receive a notice that you are added as editor of the Ed Tech Events google calendar, an invite to google calendar, or, when you log into, you should see the Ed Tech events calendar in your list of calendars and you can easily add events to it.

Please begin each entry with either "EVENT" for conferences, events, etc. or "CFP" for calls for proposals.

I've been finding that the easiest way to get more stuff in there, is to go to events I already have in my other Google calendars and use the "More actions" pulldown menu to "Copy to Ed Tech Events" - and I've been putting in some calls for papers, events, etc. in there that way. Please be sure the event notice in the calendar contains a working URL somewhere in the entry for more information.

Theorising the educational use of technology

Technology, Pedagogy and Education Call for Papers for Special Issue

Call for proposals

The key purpose of this special issue is to develop our understanding of the role of theory in technology and learning.  The choice of topic reflects an awareness of the challenges facing researchers in our field. These challenges include:

  • Addressing a general concern that the use of technology (and for that matter research into education in general) is under-theorised. How can we best argue for the importance of the theory and make clear its contribution to understanding our field?
  • Communicating theory to users of research. How does theory become mediated by academics and practitioners? How, if at all, does theoretical insight influence practice?
  • Identifying theorising as a distinctive step in the research process: What do researchers do when they are theorising? Can approaches really be characterised as inductive or deductive?  What kind of knowledge do researchers think they are producing?
  • Identifying shifts in the use of theoretical frameworks. We know that frameworks such as actor network theory, activity theory and community of practice come in and out of fashion. Why does one theory evoke enthusiasm at a particular time and when and why does that theory become stale?
  • Evaluating different kinds of theoretical contribution in the field. For example, what are the strengths and limitations of models such as TAM? Are schema such as TPCK more normative than explanatory? What has social theory to offer?
  • Asking where next for theory and theorising? For example, where might  interdisciplinary approaches be developed? How can we avoid taking frameworks from other disciplines and using them off-the peg? What would a distinctively homegrown theory of technology and pedagogy look like? Where are related fields moving in their use of theory?
