[Itech] Call for Mobile Leaning Chapters

Hello Graduates,

Please see the call for chapters in a Mobile Learning book that I am guest editing.  We are seeking information concerning underlying theory that will improve learning in particular (understand design processes, coding expertise needed, development issues, appropriate technologies, and the implementation guidelines for theory and research design development within a variety of contexts.).

It does not have to take place in a K-12 school, could be a hospital, fire department, training experiences, etc.  Some you have dissertations on this or in the works that could be useful to this book — so send them in!

Best wishes,
Dr. Franklin

Mobile Games for Learning: Design, Development, and Application

As mobile games become increasingly popular, many efforts have been exerted on their design, development and application in the context of learning. Research-based knowledge and understanding of mobile learning games have led some educators to focus on the practices or ‘how-to’ of mobile games in classroom teaching. However, much research remains to be undertaken and shared in order to understand design processes, coding expertise needed, development issues, appropriate technologies, and the implementation guidelines for theory and research design development within a variety of contexts.

We invite original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate continuing efforts to explore mobile learning games, focusing on informal learning, in-job training and embedded professional development as well as in classroom settings. We are particularly interested in articles describing strategies for accessible development, mobile learning theories, design strategies, research methodology and effective theory development underpinning the improvement of players’ learning. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

>  Recent developments in mobile learning games research
>  Latest technologies for designing mobile leaning games for industry, higher education and K-12
>  Advances in design and development processes for mobile learning games
>  Advances in researching the impact of mobile learning games
>  Research on how to use mobile learning games in informal spaces
