About the special issue
The 20 articles in this special issue represent a cross-section of interesting, cutting-edge research in advanced learning technologies. These advanced technologies are increasingly being used in educational practice and as convenient platforms for rigorous educational research.
The emphasis in the special issue is not exclusively on the technologies themselves but more fundamentally on the underlying principles of learning, the interactions with the learners, and the impact of the technologies on learning gains. Simply put, the features of the technologies are grounded in psychological theory and empirically tested in assessments of learning and motivation.
