for Learning (ARiEL SIG):

conferences and journals
Scroll down for News and notes (including articles about new TOS)

Our mission is to, “steward a community of educators, scholars, and practitioners dedicated toward research in and on digitally-enhanced immersive learning environments. Using a variety of research methods, we support a diverse approach to understanding the optimal use of immersive worlds and environments for educational purposes. We’re interested in developing a comprehensive research agenda, intended to encompass the breadth and scope of learning potentialities, affordances, challenges, and shortcomings of immersive (strikethrough “virtual”) learning environments.”
ARiEL Knowledge Base
The ARiEL Knowledge Base is a collaborative scholarship project with the objective of collecting and showcasing the evidence for “what works” in immersive learning; open to official SIG Members and invited scholar affiliates and practitioners, The ARiEL Knowledge Base summarizes seminal and emerging literature in immersive learning.

The theme is 'TRANSCENDING BORDERS.' Artists & filmmakers can interpret the theme as they see fit. Whether transcending borders between time and space, past and present, one nation and another, one language and another, a culture or civilisation or any other of the innumerable borders that present themselves as we navigate our lives. You the artist... You the machinimatogrpher...You decide.
Entries Close at Midnight SLT 31st October 2014. Winner will be announced in December 2014
Artists-in-Residence will receive a full sim for five months on which to create and display their proposed projects.  Artists will have up to three months to build their projects (though many have suggested they will be completed sooner), with all exhibits set to be open by end of October.
