We are happy to announce the publication of a NEW ISSUE of the Journal of
Virtual Worlds Research (JVWR):
  Volume 11, Number 3 (2018): Pedagogy - Taking Stock and Looking Forward
(Part 1)

Issue Editors: *Kenneth Y. T. Lim*, National Institute of Education,
Singapore and *Cátia Ferreira*, Universidade Católica Portuguesa, Portugal

2019 marks the tenth anniversary of a landmark issue of the Journal of
Virtual Worlds Research, which was themed on ‘Pedagogy.’ Issue No. 1 in
Vol. 2 of the journal was the fruition of a vision of the late Leslie
Jarmon. Dr. Jarmon was a pioneer academic in the use of virtual worlds and
immersive environments for learning.

This issue aims to document both the present and emerging state-of-the-art,
covering the adoption, design, enaction, scaling and translation of
immersive and/or mixed-reality environments for learning, and in other
contexts of education.
