Check Out a New Journal on Media and Learning

By Katie Ash — March 11, 2009 1 min read

Hat tip to Remote Access for turning me on to a new publication put out by MIT press called the International Journal of Learning and Media. The journal aims to "[provide] a forum for scholars, researchers, and practitioners to examine the changing relationships between learning and media across a wide range of forms and settings,” says its description, and its inaugural issue includes articles such as Why Virtual Worlds Can Matter and Games and Learning: What’s the Connection? Here’s the table of contents, to get you started.

Like most journals, the articles are written by researchers, so the language can be somewhat technical, but from what I’ve gotten to see so far, there’s a lot of good information and new ideas in here. There are also lots of big names on the journal’s editorial board, and wouldn’t you know, there’s Katie Salen again—one of the editors of the publication.

A version of this news article first appeared in the Digital Education blog.
