I have been looking at different journals for publication purposes. Being a special education teacher throughout this journey at Full Sail has made me modify a lot of my assignments or the way I would implement things that I have learned. For the first time I get to choose special education first.
I have found two publications that would be appropriate for me to submit to:
"CEC publishes and distributes products designed to help practitioners work more effectively in the classroom. This focus encompasses: discussions and applications of proven teaching methods and strategies; curricular materials; pre-service and in-service training materials; techniques for working with particular populations of students; assessment materials; analyses of emerging trends and issues; special education policy materials; and other products that facilitate effective teaching and administration."
I am familiar to both of these journals because I am a current subscriber. I feel that it is appropriate for me to submit my article to a journal focused on special education because I would relate to more readers than to those journals just pertaining to technology.
Although I am a huge fan of CEC, my first choice is going to be the Journal of Special Education Technology (JSET) because my AR project directly related to implementing technology- this would hit both key elements of my research.
After doing research on each of the submission requirements of each, I am excited to turn my project into an academic paper. Even if this paper does not make it, this entire AR process has taught me the ways to be able to submit something in the future.
