Call For Papers


The focus of this special track will be to explore the possible ways immersive-reality technology might change future education. In this we take a very broad vision for the delivery of education stretching from formal education at (say) university through industrial training to informal lifelong learning. The special track will seek to engage with the immersive education community in providing an opportunity for authors to write imaginative accounts of how they foresee immersive learning technologies and pedagogies changing the nature of future education. While the track will encourage papers that make use of the Science-Fiction Prototyping methodology, it will be open to any narrative vision of the future education.
