Call For Papers

Call for Papers: Call for Papers: "Virtual Worlds: play or education?"
November 2009 issue

A call for case studies and research papers discussing integrating virtual worlds with social media, VLEs and traditional teaching methods

"let them play..."
Ted Castronova, Relive08

Can virtual worlds add an extra dimension to traditional learningware? We are looking for papers that discuss and illustrate the ways in which Virtual Worlds such as Second Life, World of Warcraft, Wonderland etc can be used to enhance and contribute to the fun of learning. We are also interested in submissions looking at how Virtual Worlds may extend the educational experience beyond learning by their inclusion within and alongside the learning environment aspects of socialising and playing.
