The #ascilite exec are keen for guest posts to the new Ascilite Blog: http://blog.ascilite.org feel free to share your relevant research and ideas/discussions there.
We have received 10 submissions for the AJET special issue call for papers on mobile AR & VR and these are currently under review – we will accept quality late submissions but only for a short while. Will keep all posted re the progress of the special issue. Thanks to @Helssi & @mkearneypost for their help on this SI.
Three weeks until submissions are due for the AJET Special Issue on Mobile AR and VR – time to get writing!
Sarah Jones from Coventry University (UK) will share her experiences of creating and sharing 360 VR content and simulations in Paramedicine and Journalism Education.

@sebfiedler and Hamburg Uni Press have launched a new open access Journal focusing upon Design-Based Research within education:
EDeR: Educational Design Research
EDeR applies a Triple-Peer-Review approach. This contains three phases and introduces a
The accepted contribution is handed to an additional reviewer who functions as a Discussant of the original text. Authors can suggest a Discussant to the Journal Editors. However, the Journal Editors reserve the right of final decision on selecting a Discussant. Reviewer III (Discussant) delivers a separate and coherent Discussion Article and is publicly attributed as its author. In principle, several Discussion Articles can be elicited for a particular contribution.

The goal of the Ascilite mobile learning SIG is go boldly beyond the Zombie Apocalypse of endless mobile learning projects that focus upon “mobile access to virtual learning environments that are being used as repositories”. For example exploring the potential of user-generated mobile AR and VR, enabling learner-generated contexts and heutagogy (self-determined learning). See for example (Cook & Santos, 2016), (Cook, Pachler & Bachmair, 2013).
