This special issue of Educational Research focuses on developing our thinking about the educational possibilities of Virtual Worlds, which are defined here as being environments within which users are represented by and operate through an avatar and can interact with others over the internet or local area network. It includes an editorial and six papers which span schools and higher education, a range of different virtual world platforms, across different disciplines. The emphasis is on moving from descriptive accounts to frameworks and models for conceptualising the field.
