Open Education Europa: Exploring the cyber-physical continuum in education
Learning in cyber-physical worlds by Open Education Europa
eLearning Papers is a digital publication on eLearning by openeducationeuropa.eu, a portal created by the European Commission to promote the use of ICT in education and training.
The issue No 39 of eLearning Papers features a collection of articles that highlight these approaches and their potential for the development of better learning experiences. It focuses on exploring the cyber-physical continuum in education.
What lies in the space where the cyber world and physical world converge? A spectrum of blended augmented experiences and a fount of new opportunities for educational practice. The success of this projected convergence depends on the availability of affordable virtual reality hardware, such as wearable haptic and movement tracking devices, and the use of engaging instructional approaches such as experiential learning, gamification and problem-based learning.
