-------  Call for Papers for RPTEL Special Issue -----------

Special Issue on Practical Applications of Mobile and Internet Educational Games
Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning

The electronic version of this cfp can be seen at

Commercial games, especially Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing
Games (MMORPGs) such as World of Warcraft and EverQuest are
very popular nowadays. These types of games not only have fantasy
interfaces and rich storylines, but they also give the players a lot of power
to control what they want to do in the game world. This freedom of choice allows
players to do what they want when they want, aligning well with
the constructivist paradigm of learning. This opens up a host of possibilities
for using these game approaches in education to potentially improve
learner’s learning experience and performance.

This special issue focuses on sharing experiences and innovations in theoretical
and conceptual issues related to the development of practical mobile and
internet-based educational games. The aim is to provide readers with
evidences and experiments that account for learners' experiences and
perceptions related to knowledge and concepts acquisition through
game approaches in various disciplines and domains.
