Developments in information and communications networks not only define globalization but are
changing the format and density of the flows of knowledge, research and
creativity. Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks have become a particularly important
factor in this process. Serving as platforms for collaboration, P2P networks are
now an important organizing architecture for economic and cultural innovation.
Originating within the domain of computer science, P2P networks form robust
informational and computational communities. Social networks like Limewire,
Facebook, LinkedIn, flickr, Second Life, World of Warcraft, Wikipedia, Ning and
YouTube are generating new models of production and consumption that are
changing the rules of commercial industry. Moving beyond the one-to-many
production seen in industrialism, P2P introduces many-to-many production.

In this special issue of the journal E-Learning and Digital Media, we will examine the multiple ways in which P2P collaboration now undergirds changes
in learning and education. Interest areas include:

- Learning Communities, Gaming and Digital Media Design
- Digital Curriculum and Pedagogy
- Creativity, Innovation and the Global Imaginary
- Information Systems, P2P Networks and Collective Intelligence
- Open Science, Open Learning and Open Innovation
- Complexity and Nonlinearity
- Educational Policy, Planning and Politics
- Instructional Design and Learning Systems
- Literacy, Language, and Multiliteracies

This Call for Papers asks contributors to provide papers of no more than 5,000 words
(including references) exploring issues and concerns around the notion of
‘Peer-to-Peer’ Collaboration and Networked Learning. This special issue of
E-Learning and Digital Media (www.wwwords.co.uk/ELEA) will be published in

Please signal your intentions as soon as possible by sending a title and abstract to the Editors at the email addresses above.
