Topic: Virtual and Augmented Reality in EducationIn the last few years, Virtual reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) have rapidly increased their popularity. AR/VR solutions can enhance classroom experiences and expand opportunities at all levels of learning. As a result, their use in educational environments has been a topic of interest in academic education. However, both virtual reality and augmented reality are not yet widely used in higher education.
Topic: Gamification and Game-Based Learning
Gamification is an educational approach that seeks to motivate students by using introduction of game elements into a traditionally non-game situation. Game-based learning refers to the borrowing of certain gaming principles, it is designing learning activities that can incrementally introduce concepts, and guide users towards an end goal. Gamification and game-based learning both promote engagement and sustained motivation in learning.
This topic aims to publish works focused on all aspects of gamification and Game-based learning. It welcomes submissions from academics and researchers that facilitate education or propose new theories on teaching and learning that can be supported by such technology.
