Learner-Generated Augmentation: Curriculum design with AR
Apr 5 @ 04:00 PM – 04:50 PM

Presenter: Kenneth Y T Lim (SL: Veritas Raymaker),
Description: This presentation introduces an approach to the use of Augmented Reality (AR) in the design of learning environments, which foregrounds the surfacing of novice conceptions. Termed Learner-Generated Augmentation, the approach differs from the majority of current interventions with AR in that it does not presume upon the pre-design of learning artifacts by experts. In this way, it is more scalable and affordable than the approach that is currently default in the use of AR in learning.

Participants will be able to approach Learner-Generated Augmentation as a curriculum design paradigm

Woolston-Steen Theological Seminary Virtual Ritual
Apr 8 @ 04:00 PM – 05:00 PM

Hosts: Stasia Weston (Aevalle Galicia); Belladonna Laveau (Belladonna Yarrowroot); Stacia Sylvester (Stacia Abonwood); Isidora LaVeau (IsidoraKite Resident); Woolston-Steen Theological Seminary

Description: In this immersive experience, we’ll start by providing a short orientation and then allowing visitors to go through a variation of one of the healing/blessing rituals set up to be self-paced. Our students learn how to prepare such rituals in the virtual world so that they will then have the skills to perform them for their interfaith / pagan communities in the real world. Notecards with important landmarks on the school’s sim will be provided, should visitors wish to explore further.
To demonstrate how we integrate a variety of technologies to provide a multi-layered educational experience.
To engage participants in a virtual ritual demonstration, created by our students.

Access: See the conference website for information about creating a Second Life account. Either SL or Firestorm viewers are recommended. Skype will be used for an orientation to demonstrate the Moodle and Office 365 tools used by the school.
Accessibility: A written script will be available during the presentation.
Location: Sacred Cauldron

This venue will be available until 21 April for individual exploration after the presentation.
