Mixed Reality (MR) is broadly defined as the merging of real and virtual worlds to produce new contexts. Augmented Reality (AR) is the superposition of computer-generated elements in the real world. The rapid growth of mobile technologies facilitates the development of MR and AR systems and applications. Both MR and AR are evolving fast and are opening new horizons in education and training. MR and AR have the potential to offer engaging and immersive learning experiences improving learning outcomes in formal and informal education. These relatively new educational technologies necessitate new theoretical and empirical studies to explore how MR and AR can be effectively used in education, what instructional methods and pedagogies are appropriate to use and how teachers and learners can take full advantage of them.
The special session “(Mobile) Mixed and Augmented Reality in Education” (MAR-EDU’ 2023) within the IMCL 2023 International Conference aims to promote the discussion on the applications and the impact of Mixed and Augmented Reality in Education. It will provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present their latest work and propose Mixed and Augmented Reality systems and solutions, pedagogies, and instructional design methodologies as well as case studies and implementations.
