Call for papers – Online/distance teaching and learning in mathematics education
Special issue in Volume 14
The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected everyone worldwide. Despite the extraordinary circumstances, mathematics educators, like all other educators, have the obligation to ensure that children's education remains unaffected. In many countries, mathematics teaching is currently being pursued through the online or distance mode. While some countries may have advanced in these efforts, others are lagging behind. Ordinarily, the need for online/distance teaching and learning emerges in response to specific individual cases. However, for the first time in history, the present scenario has necessitated this arrangement for every teacher and student. Consequently, various related problems that have not been encountered previously, or received adequate attention, may be revealed. The Hiroshima Journal of Mathematics Education (HJME) invites papers from across the world on the topic of Online/distance teaching and learning in mathematics education, as a special issue of Volume 14. We fervently hope that this pandemic reaches its end, and a similar occurrence is not repeated in the future. On the other hand, we think that it is necessary to accumulate our diverse educational experiences and knowledge on the subject of online/distance teaching and learning, as it is unlikely that this topic would be revisited in the future.
Papers in this special issue may include:
- What kind of online lesson(s) do teachers envision/expect?
- What is possible and impossible for teaching and learning in the online environment?
- What kind of conditions and constraints exist in actualizing such a mode of instruction?
- How is the teacher’s preparation of a lesson different from that for face-to-face instruction? What do teachers need more, or not?
- How does learners’ cognition differ from that in face-to-face instruction?
This special issue also includes questions beyond the classroom environment.
- How is mathematics teacher education in the online mode different from the face-to-face version?
> pre-service teacher training
> lesson study with in-service teachers
- What are the teaching topics and methods suitable for the online environment, and what are their characteristics?
- How to use textbooks in an online environment?
These are some examples, although we are open to further suggestions, including a wide possibility for relevant theoretical and empirical studies.
