Description: Our team seeks to create a revision for education from the design perspective. We consider online/virtual education as being a design process. What if educators only lectured at a minimum, spending more time with students as they find problems, gather information, brainstorm ideas, plan solutions, test their hypotheses, and improve the design? Virtual worlds provide the best environment for students and instructors to engage in the design thinking process.

Description: Eureka World’s platform takes a broader perspective on learning and involves a wide spectrum of actors from inside and outside the school. All stakeholders of education are involved in a collaborative of the learning process: the population inside school (mainly teachers, principals, students, other staff) as well as the population outside school (entrepreneurs, associations, institutions, municipalities, academic, families, and private persons etc.) In this presentation, we present and define the unique concept of Eureka World’s educational ecosystem: The concept is discussed generally in its 3D3C perception of teaching – which emphasis how it allows quality assimilation of learning patterns for students in the 21st century.
