Due to the unprecedented global pandemic, the steering committee of FabLearn Europe & MakeEd 2020 has decided not to hold a conference in London this year. To compensate for this missed opportunity, we invite submissions for a special issue on Computing, Design and Making in Education in the International Journal of Child-Computer Interaction (see, https://bit.ly/3cnMsYL).
Submissions must present original work in the realm of computing, design, and making or digital fabrication in educational settings. Submissions must cite relevant published work, indicate novel approaches, and stress the importance of the submission to these hands-on learning communities. Topics related to COMPUTING, DESIGN and MAKING in EDUCATION include but are not limited to:
Case studies, best practices and evaluations
Innovative approaches, methods and ideas
Emerging technologies and tools
Theoretical perspectives and concerns
Submissions must be between 4000 and 8000 words with the normal length being around 5500 words excluding references. Please carefully follow the author guidelines at https://bit.ly/2wOD1m9 while preparing your manuscript.
Manuscripts for this special issue should be submitted at www.editorialmanager.com/ijcci
