Interactive Technology and Smart Education (ITSE) is a multi-disciplinary journal examining educational technologies that have emerged from multimedia and social software. The journal promotes innovative technology in the context of pedagogical strategies and learners’ educational needs. By bringing together these specialist fields, the journal bridges an important gap in educational technology research.
