CfP: 7th European Conference on Games Based Learning (ECGBL 2013) , Porto, Portugal, 3-4 October 2013

This is a first call for papers for the 7th European Conference on Games Based Learning – ECGBL 2013 being held at Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto (ISEP), Porto, Portugal on the 3-4 October 2013.

This call will close on 14th March 2013.

Over the last ten years, the way in which education and training is delivered has changed considerably with the advent of new technologies. One such new technology that holds considerable promise for helping to engage learners is Games-Based Learning (GBL). The Conference offers an opportunity for scholars and practitioners interested in the issues related to GBL to share their thinking and research findings. Papers can cover various issues and aspects of GBL in education and training: technology and implementation issues associated with the development of GBL; use of mobile and MMOGs for learning; pedagogical issues associated with GBL; social and ethical issues in GBL; GBL best cases and practices, and other related aspects. We are particularly interested in empirical research that addresses whether GBL enhances learning.

In the first instance all submission types require an abstract. For more information please go to: http://academic-conferences.org/ecgbl/ecgbl2013/ecgbl13-call-papers.htm.
