Call for Articles for the Spring Issue of VEJ (Virtual Education Journal)

Please make sure to get  your submissions to VEJ no later than April 10th.  This next issue’s theme will be "Powerful Collegial Learning in Virtual Worlds.”  Although the term is “Collegial" it can also mean “Collaborative" and “Cooperative" - and including "Professional Learning Community” (PLC) work. This can include work you are doing with your colleagues and friends in any virtual world or environment including distance learning. If anyone wants to write about VWBPE17 Conference or anything we are doing with Virtual Pioneers, ISTE VEN, ISTE Games and SIMs, etc. please do so.

Also, remember, even though we usually try to have a theme, we still are interested in other topic submissions - especially updates on your use of VR & AR and/or your visits and work in “new” virtual learning spaces/worlds. 

Remember, now that we are using indesign, all I need is the text (font and size don’t matter - and anywhere between 500 - 2000 words is best). We love pictures, so please send your highest quality pics separately (with captions and directions for where you would like them placed) as png, jpeg, psd, or tif.  

Finally, VEJ is only as good as we all make it! I greatly appreciate your help and support! 

Please put “VEJ” in your subject and send to rvojtek@edovation.com .
