Recent scholarship in the interdisciplinary field of the learning sciences has focused on ways that young people use digital tools to connect learning experiences across different settings and over time. This research has emphasized both youth agency in creating new activities, communities, and pathways for interest-related pursuits and the ways that peers, adults, and different sociocultural contexts afford and constrain opportunity. These contexts include peer groups and families, as well as schools, neighborhoods, cities, and national infrastructures for building connections between school-based and out-of-school learning.

In this special issue of Digital Education Review, we seek articles focused on these topics that can advance our understanding of how to promote more equitable youth learning across settings. Articles should grapple with the interplay of agency and structure, as well as draw on and expand our theorizing of learning across settings and time. Consistent with the focus of the journal, articles that focus on digital environments as well as on pursuits involving the use of digital tools are especially encouraged.

Articles should be approximately 6,000-8,000 words. Abstracts of 150 words are due for October 30th 2017 (send it to one of the special issue Editors:, or, and full papers deadline is February 28th, 2018.
