eLearning Papers announces selected articles for its 25th edition. Call for papers

Hoy os traemos a este espacio la noticia de que eLearning Papers announces selected articles for its 25th edition. Call for papers

'Game-Based Learning: new practices, new classrooms' is the topic of eLearning Papers upcoming issue, due to the publication in the second week of July. Nine articles have been selected by the Editorial Committee and guest editor, Maja Pivec. We thank all authors for their high quality submissions.

This new issue of eLearning Papers should help to find answers to questions such as: Why should we implement games for learning? How should we do this? What games are appropriate for my needs?

The potential of Game Based Learning (GBL) is still underestimated. We firmly believe that GBL can play a major role in renewing learning as it is perceived by learners in all levels of education and training systems.

We have also created a community about 'Mixed realities, virtual world and gaming' dedicated to the exchange of knowledge and experiences, which is related to the changing role of computer and digital games in various areas of education and training. Join it!

The new issue will feature 9 articles, 4 of them are in depth insights on the topic and the other 5 are examples from the field of the implementation of games in education.
