Abstract

IJILT 35,5 In the call for manuscripts for this special issue of IJILT on equity in digital teaching and learning, we wrote that we were looking for “critical scholarship that pushes back on platitudes and widely accepted myths about educational technology to address the complexities of reducing educational inequities.” The five articles presented in this special issue contribute, as we had hoped, to exploring foundational challenges and emerging possibilities of equity for all learners, particularly as these challenges and possibilities intersect with technologies. Each piece contributes to the essential effort toward understanding and enacting equity in a range of contexts, including K-12 classrooms, open education, social media, coding, and educational technology as a field of study. Typically, this editorial space in a special issue would give us an opportunity to identify the specific contributions of the articles in the issue, to connect them for you thematically, to share our thoughts on our fields’ efforts toward equity, and to identify possible next steps. However, as we considered how to approach the editorial, we recognized that the educational research publication process is, in and of itself, a barrier to equity. With that in mind, we decided to use the guest editorial
