ALT’s Open Access academic journal, Research in Learning Technology (RLT), publishes peer-reviewed research that forms an evidence-base for good practice and policy development in education and technology. Following the significant recent themed collection on Playful Learning, ALT and RLT are pleased to announce a Call for Papers for a new Special Collection on ‘Mobile Mixed Reality Enhanced Learning’.

The collection focuses on the potential of mobile learning to open up new learning horizons beyond the classroom for learners and learning communities, moving beyond the simple re-purposing of established content or pedagogical strategies for mobile delivery.

In particular, contributors are invited to explore the unique affordances of Mobile Mixed Reality technology, an emerging technology that bridges the gap between computer-generated and real-world environments. Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality and Virtual Reality have been shown to have the potential to enhance student engagement and learner outcomes, but the educational implications of these emerging technologies are still being explored and tested.

Contributions to this Special Collection will explore the current state of research and methodological approaches in the areas of mobile Augmented Reality and mobile Virtual Reality in higher and further education, and introduce readers to emerging educational applications of mobile learning.

The Special Collection is edited by Dr Thomas Cochrane, Auckland University of Technology (AUT), Ass. Professor Helen Farley, University of South Queensland, Dr Vickel Narayan, AUT, and RLT editor Dr Fiona Smart, Edinburgh Napier University.
