Dear Colleagues,

Education is evolving to overcome new challenges related to the unique
competencies of the professionals of the future and the requirements of
a new generation that is immersed in the digital media world from birth.
Digital Games is one of the media that have the potential to reach these
two objectives.

Game-based learning is the scientific area that focuses on the
development of games that are designed over specific learning
objectives. From thoroughly crafted educational games to the use of
gamification, the new era of the school will be digital. However, we
should not forget tangential learning with the use of entertainment games.

Mobile games are also leveraging a large community of gamers that relies
on the specifics of mobile technology, such as ubiquity and
pervasiveness. The solutions can leverage informal learning, literacy,
science communication, and citizenship, among a vast area of applications.

The aim of this Special Issue is to disclose the new advances in
game-based learning and mobile games that can enhance the effectiveness
and outreach of learning objects.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

Game-based learning;
Serious games;
Mobile games;
Pervasive games;
Learning models and practices with the use of games;
New technologies for game-based learning:
Virtual and augmented reality;
New interaction devices, toys, and playthings;
3D rendering technologies;
Game engines and development tools;
Location-based games;
Artificial intelligence;
Educational games analytics;
Assessment and evaluation of educational games;
User experience design;
The psychology of educational games;
Gender and age issues;
