EcoLearn featured in new book - Learning Science: Theory, Research, & Practice

November 15, 2019

The new book, Learning Science: Theory, Research & Practice, features a chapter about our work, Designing Immersive Authentic Simulations That Enhance Motivation and Learning: EcoLearn, by Chris Dede, Tina Grotzer, Amy Kamarainen, and Shari Metcalf. It describes our work over the past decade with EcoMUVE, EcoMOBILE, and EcoXPT, affordances of immersive media (multi-user virtual environments, augmented realities) for motivation and learning and how the design of these three curricula draws on theoretical and conceptual principles from the learning sciences.
