Special Edition Journals and eBooks
SITE’s community of editors, researchers, SIG chairs, and conference attendees have collaborated many times over the years to produce special edition books and journal issues. These publications are often in response to trends in the field or subjects that affect us and education on a global scale, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

We carry this commitment into every aspect of our work and extend it to the broader field of educational technology. We believe that it is impossible to identify and communicate the full range of stories about education & technology without incorporating the perspective of everyone. Specifically, we aim to ensure that we are welcoming and supportive of all individuals regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, physical ability, nationality, age, socioeconomic status, and belief. We do not tolerate harassment, discrimination, or incivility across any of our communications or interactions.
