About the Issue

The articles chosen for this issue took a slightly different perspective for the journal, focusing on science and technology in education. It is particularly unique that the articles combined an emphasis on science and technology education based on qualitative social research, the importance of teacher preparation, and the increasing need for diversity and inclusivity when working with technology and globalization in education. This issue includes intriguing articles on the impact of opioids on students and schools in Ohio and the use of flipped learning instructional videos in the New York City school system. It includes several articles involving teacher preparation, development, and autonomy in the sciences and technology that utilize qualitative research to provide for the greater complexity of the human context. One article's thought-provoking theme is the need for inclusivity and diversity in higher education to balance the effects of technology and globalization on society and education. What stands out in this issue is the focus on the need for qualitative and social research that is inclusive and embraces the complexities of human diversity in the sciences and technology in education. The editors hope you will learn from the progressive perspectives of the articles in this issue that are continuing to break new ground in educational research. The editorial staff and founding editorial board thank you for supporting the journal during 2023. Happy New Year (2024). Edward Cromarty
