#edjournal: available to download – NOW!

I am pleased to announce that after a successful online launch of #edjournal, the PDF edition is now live and available to download. You can download it from the site or direct from here. An EPUB version is still in the works but the process is not as straight forward as I had assumed. However, I will persevere and make it available as soon as I can.

You can also read and download #edjournal via issuu – see it embedded below:

Over on the site, I have added the Disqus commenting system to article pages so that readers can add opinions and ideas. We really want to generate discussion around the articles that we publish, so if after reading you feel inspired, please leave a comment. You could ask a question of the author, offer further ideas or start a debate. In the process of doing this I learned how to create my own Google gadget.

There is also now an #edjournal Twitter account. Please follow us at @_edjournal to keep up to date.

Or you can subscribe to the site feed over on the homepage or by clicking here.

Nick and I hope that you enjoy reading #edjournal in its intended format. Comments, ideas, constructive criticism are welcome as usual!

#edjournal: available to read online – NOW!

Volume 1, Issue 1 of #edjournal is available to read online – now!

Nick worked really hard to finish editing the articles and I have completed the design of web and PDF versions of the journal.

I am in the process of adding the ability for readers to comment on the site. The PDF/EPUB and Kindle versions will be available in early January; I am just working through some of the formatting issues that are thrown up by the differing eReaders that are on the market.

Nick and I hope that you enjoy reading the articles in the journal and would value any and all feedback. We would like to thank everyone who has contributed articles thus far. The first issue features the following articles:

  • The Changing Shape of Mathematics Education – Andy Kemp
  • What is the role of ICT teachers in 21st Century Teaching and Learning? – Andrea Pellicia
  • Looking in the Mirror: Reflective Learning – Peter Richardson
  • Implementing New Technological Tools in Schools – Jan Webb
  • The Boy in the Nazi Jumper: Literacy and Knowledge Creation in the History Classroom – Nicholas Dennis
  • Going on Safari: Games Based Learning in Action – Dawn Hallybone

Issue two is well underway and has a mobile/handheld learning theme. Should you wish to contribute to a future edition of the journal please add your name, article title and a brief outline explaining what the article is about to this Google doc: Articles for #edjournal. The deadline for issue 3 is the 25th February 2011.

Click here to read Nick’s thoughts on issue one and to see what’s coming up in issue two.

#edjournal will be available very soon. Watch this space!

#edjournal has a home!

edjournal.co.uk

The #edjournal website went live this evening. It is still a little rough around the edges but is definitely taking shape.

The site includes a home page featuring the latest updates; an explanation of the journal and its purpose; links to articles currently under review; and rules for authors. A theme has been added and the contact info has been updated. Rules for editors will be added shortly along with further articles as we receive them.

If you wish to know more then head on over to edjournal.co.uk and take a closer look.

#edjournal (an update!)

This is a brief update on what’s happening with #edjournal.

If you have written or are writing an article for submission, we have decided to go with the Harvard System of Referencing.

A web based home for the journal is currently under construction. This will include clear direction on how to submit articles, rules for submission and editing and also host the published journal when it is ready.

In the meantime if you added an article title or idea to the following document, now is the time to submit your article for peer review.

We have opted to use Google docs to host and peer review the articles. Once we have enough articles submitted we will begin the peer review process. More details about this will follow shortly.
