Description: Meet in the Counting House as Scrooge introduces participants to Dicken’s classic Victorian novella: A Christmas Carol! Additional dialogue has been added to some scenes, and a complete new scene has been added to complete the story with a happy ending. Participants will explore the snowy context of the ghost story through nine key scenes, and can click on the characters to hear what they are thinking in each situation.
Access: See the conference website for information about creating a Second Life account (Attendees). Either SL or Firestorm viewers are recommended.

Learning in 3D comes alive through the mind of eight-year-old Jack. Join us as we explore the creation of Jack’s World, a Jurassic simulation that runs on OpenSimulator at Virtual Harmony. Virtual Harmony is a participatory design, community, and classroom space, hosting a collection of games, simulations, contemplative spaces, and immersive experiences that span research, education, social good and values-based leadership.
Participants will discover student perspectives on the benefits and challenges of studying and holding classes across different virtual worlds.
Participants will explore the student projects, the technology challenges, and how the students took their ideas and modeled them in OpenSim, an open source virtual world.
