Call for Papers:

Didacticae is now accepting papers for its upcoming monographic section: Specific Didactics in Times of COVID-19
Deadline to submit papers: June 30, 2021. Publication: March 2022, issue 11

The wrongly called ‘new technologies’ were ground-breaking at the beginning of the 21st century, when some teachers started exploring digital tools as a resource to complement F2F teaching. With the arrival of COVID-19, F2F classes have changed due to the restriction measures, distance, and even quarantines in lockdown which have led to the constant use of ICT tools. This “new normal2 has forced both teachers and students to learn how to use ICT tools for teaching and learning all sorts of subjects, for blended or totally online learning. The teachers must reconsider their teaching to adjusts it to the new requirements, always changeable.

Didacticae now accepts both epistemological and research papers on how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting and will continue to affect the teaching and learning of specific didactics (i.e. language, literature, mathematics, experimental sciences, social sciences, arts and crafts, music, philosophy, etc.):

Always related to specific didactics below are some of the topics that we suggest (though not limited to):

- face-to-face, blended and online learning in the teaching and learning of specific didactics which, traditionally, exploit F2F to the fullest due to their biological/ physical implications: physical education, arts and crafts, music…
- digital technology for learning and teaching specific didactics: use, good use, wrong use, overuse
- the digital gap: teachers and students with fewer resources, teachers and students not digitally literate and the specific didactics
- synchrony and asynchrony: doses, combinactions and effectiveness in specific didactics
- teaching planning in specific didactics in unpredictable times
- digital communicative competence in times of crisis and specific didactics
- motivation and interaction in specific didactics in virtual learning environments
- management and coordination of teachers and students in specific didactics
- individual, cooperative and collaborative work in times of COVID-19: challenges and solutions
- evaluating specific didactics from the distance: good practices and how to deal with fraudulent practices
- tutoring through specific didactics in times of COVID-19
- the role of emotions in specific didactics in times of pandemic

Should a paper be initially sent for the monograph issue and be accepted but not fit the monograph or exceed the number of papers, this paper could be published in a suitable section of a later issue.

Likewise, the call for papers for any other type of article on Specific Didactics (Social Sciences, Language, Literature, Mathematics, Music, Physical Education, Experimental Sciences...) in the format of research article, history and epistemology, teaching practices and innovations and PhD, book and project reviews is open permanently. Nevertheless, given the limited number of articles per section, and having received a high number of innovation and experiences articles, we encourage authors to turn these into research articles and submit articles on History and Epistemology of Didactics.

The submissions will be peer-reviewed following a blind process and will follow the template established by the journal.
