Volume 10
E-learning & Social Media:
Education and Citizenship for the Digital 21st Century Statement of Purpose

Technology is one of the most salient phenomena influencing local, national, and global interactions in the 21st century. Both industrialized and developing nations are moving toward a social order where knowledge is disseminated, manipulated, and shared through in a digital media environment. Equity in access to this environment will strongly influence the human condition, academic learning, political stability, and economic enterprise. Today technology influences the way people relate, communicate, work, live, and engage in recreational activities. The frequency with which communication is transmitted coupled with both simple and complex technological innovations, continues to challenge and change the very fabric of society in ways never before imagined. In this volume we seek to share examples of theory, research, and best practices that directly contribute to our understanding of how access to and the use of digital media will promote equity and social justice in diverse political and cultural contexts – with a particular focus on academic achievement, e-citizenship, health/wellness outcomes, and political and economic stability. The peer-reviewed volume will be divided into sections as follows:
Section I
Theory: broad and generalizing theory that reflects and reports on, commentary and history compiled from the perspectives of both the dominant and non-dominant cultures. Topics will focus on the political, educational and organizational principles and directives that shape education and citizenship for the 21st century.

Section II
Research: original innovative research, based on the systematic collection and analysis of data or facts, which may involve the application or testing of educational and social theory.

Section III
Practice: exemplary practices and programs found in academic, community and workplace environments designed to enhance the development of skills, knowledge and operational effectiveness. Chapters may be case studies, narratives, or technical reports that involve putting theory and research into practice.

Themes may include, but are not limited to, the following:

Communication across the digital divide,
Educational opportunities through social media and e-learning,
Effective strategies to attract and retain online students,
E-learning and citizenship education,
Empowerment through digital media,
Generation ‘Y’, education and e-citizenship
Providing equity in access to technology,
Social media and cyber bullying,
Teaching and learning disseminated through time, space, and via multiple people,
Technology, a tool to increase student achievement and success,
Technology, an effective tool in closing the achievement gap?
The challenge of bridging the formal and informal contexts of learning through social media and mobile technologies,
The role of technology and social media in influencing healthcare and wellness decisions,
Using social media to implement lifelong learning,
Using social-media to provide equity in access to health care,
Using technology, including mobile devices, to provide high quality teaching and learning in K-20 formal education.

Chapters are invited on any of the above, or related, themes. If you would like to contribute a chapter to this volume, please email an expression of interest to Prof. Elinor L. Brown at elinorlbrown@gmail.com, Prof. Anna Krasteva at anna.krasteva@gmail.com or Prof. Maria Ranieri, at maria.ranieri@unifi.it. Expression of interest should consist of a title, author contact details (including position, institution, e-mail and postal address) and a 500-word summary of your proposed topic indicating how this topic addresses the mission of the volume.

Important dates
Expressions of interest should be received by October 30, 2013 (extended). Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by October 15, 2013 and sent chapter format and guidelines. First drafts of chapters are due December 1, 2013. Final chapters are due by January 31, 2014.
