Currently, there is a major debate regarding the most effective methods for providing K-12 students with the educational experiences they need to succeed in the 21st century. Recent definitions of high quality teachers state that, in addition to possessing both content and pedagogical knowledge, they need the ability to facilitate more innovative instructional strategies that benefit from the use of new technology tools. Problem-based learning (PBL), as well as its close relatives (project-based learning, case-based learning, inquiry learning, etc.), represent widely recommended best practices in which effective technology integration can make a tangible difference. This special issue invites research papers that focus on effective uses of technology to support both pre-service and practicing teachers in implementing PBL best practices in their current and future classrooms.
