This Special Issue, “Collaborative Learning with Technology—Frontiers and Evidence”, addresses the surge for developments and research related to using technology towards collaborative learning. In an ever-changing world where skills go obsolete in months rather than years, working collaboratively has become a core skill to survive and flourish in the 21st century. There is probably no better way to promote skills in collaboration by learning collaboratively.
With the rise of social constructivism and blended learning in the education sector, we welcome for inclusion in this Special Issue articles that: (1) provide an empirical evidence on strategies and interventions that facilitate collaborative learning with technology for narrowing the literature gaps; (2) present studies (qualitative, quantitative, or mixed) that demonstrate how effective blend of collaborative learning and technology could enhance learning experience, student-cantered learning, and learning outcomes, and (3) describe frontiers and practices in the realm of implementing or promoting collaborative learning with technology.
