Complexities of cultural diversity are interwoven into the social fabric of regions, states and transnational communities, and this is viewed as one of the most significant socio-economic challenges of this decade. According to several projections, by the year 2020, national student populations will be represented by students from diverse ethnic backgrounds.
Despite initiatives to foster positive and productive relationships among culturally diverse learners, there is a distinct gap between theory and practice, and this is compounded when considering the use of information and communications technologies (ICT). This is evidenced by unequal access to educational technology and limited support for the educational development of the ethinic minority and migrant learners.
ICT has enormous potential to address exclusion and inequality: "inclusion through learning innovation". Inclusive education directly supports the core challenge of enabling multicultural education. The Multicultural Education & Technology Journal (METJ) will undertake a key role in supporting educational change through providing access to research and practice in the multicultural education and learning technologies interface.
METJ offers both contributors and subscribers the opportunity to examine the role of learning technologies in supporting multicultural education from a comprehensive multidisciplinary and geographic perspective.
