JIME - Journal of Interactive Media in Education
Aus der Selbstbeschreibung: The origin of this new Journal lies in the excitement we experience in exploring the nature of interactive media. These media can serve many purposes, but for education they create some intriguing intellectual challenges. Here is a medium in which the learner makes a contribution. The ability to manipulate not only the pace and sequence of the material, but also the content and form of presentation, means that people play a fundamentally different role in directing their personal learning experiences. That simple fact allows us to ask some fundamental questions about what this may mean for the nature of knowledge and its construction and acquisition. What kind of impact will it have on the role of institutions in the development and promulgation of knowledge, and on the roles of teachers and learners as they participate in a new way of knowing?
