Letter from the President:
Hello ISLS Community,
I am writing with exciting news about two events central to the mission of ISLS. New Editors of JLS Selected
ISLS is pleased to announce that the search for new editors for the Journal of the Learning Sciences has been successfully completed. Iris Tabak (Ben Gurion University, Israel) and Josh Radinsky (University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), U. S.) will take over stewardship of JLS as of January, 2013. This is the first international team to lead the journal. The Society is indebted to current editors Cindy Hmelo-Silver and Yasmin Kafai for their efforts to increase the profile and impact of JLS. Our deep appreciation and thanks for what you have accomplished. Thanks also to the selection committee, headed by Past President Paul Kirschner, and consisting of the current editors of JLS, and ISLS Board members Frank Fischer, Eleni Kyza, and Tim Koschmann.
