Steve Pec   Editor of Academic Exchange Quarterly
"New technologies such as blogs, wikis, massively multiplayer online games, social networking technologies and video- and music-dissemination technologies have rapidly spread, by means of the Internet, each with additional, new literacy forms and functions that are reshaped by social practices…literacy has now come to mean a rapid and continuous process of change in ways in which we read, write, view, listen, compose, and communicate information."

Literacy scholars and educational technologists are trying to understand whether and how new media and technologies are impacting young people’s cognition, emotion, and behaviors. Do children growing up in a wired environment learn differently? To what extent are the behaviors associated with new media contributing to or interfering with meaningful and purposeful learning? How can educators reach tech-savvy learners, motivate them for lifelong learning, and help them develop expertise and skills that advance the healthy growth of human beings and our society?

Various dimensions including but not limited to time, technology, brain capacity, attention, self regulation, cognitive load, and individual differences contribute to the complexity of understanding issues related to new media literacy. With is special issue, we invite researchers, scholars and practitioners to contribute research findings and discussions on issues such as
  • Impact of new media and information literacy
  • Impact of new media activities on learning and self regulation
  • Relationship of new media activities to cognition and psychology
  • Patterns of behavior and expertise involved in new media activities such as media multitasking
  • Connection of new media cognition, affection, and behavior to multimedia design for learning
  • Qualitative and quantitative assessment tools and measurements viable for evaluating new media cognition, affection, and behaviors
Understanding new media literacy will benefit society as a whole, but more specifically, understanding the cognition, emotion, and behaviors associated with new media literacy among the younger generations will bridge research in computing and learning technologies, education, cognition, psychology, and neuroscience as well as advancing youth development theories in the new digital age.
