CALL FOR PROPOSALS - DEADLINE EXTENDED

Are you exploring the use of virtual reality (VR) to support learning? Consider submitting your manuscript to the International Journal of Smart Technology and Learning. For this special issue we define VR as any technology that provides its users with an interactive computer-generated experience through text, audio, visual, spatial and/or speed messages within a simulated environment that engages its users in multi-sensory interactions and reactions for learning. By this definition, augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), hybrid reality and extended reality (XR) are included. Initial proposal submissions are due by September 15, 2019. Additional submission information and notes for authors can be found at http://bit.ly/2IzoPk6. Questions can be directed to guest co-editors Charles Xiaoxue Wang, xxwang@fgcu.edu or Michele Stork, mistork@fgcu.edu.
