Culture and education for peace in times of 3-Dimensional Immersive Digital Environments (3D-IDEs)
Apr 5 @ 03:00 PM – 03:50 PM

Presenter: Christian Jonathan Angel Rueda (SL: ecoonis), Universidad Autonoma de Queretaro ; Juan Carlos Valdes Godin, (SL: interpres)
Description: The present work is based on the macro concept of 3D-IDEs, in specific virtual world environments, having the social and individual characteristics that could enhance the development of culture and peace in school contexts. The final reflections indicate that 3D-IDEs, especially virtual worlds, overcome the fact of information sharing through interaction of visual synthesis representation of the concepts of culture and education.

Participants will be able to understand how culture and education relate to peace.

Re-visioning interprofessional education in virtual worlds
Apr 5 @ 04:00 PM – 04:50 PM

Presenters: Susan Toth-Cohen (SL: Zsuzsa Tomsen), Thomas Jefferson University; Anne C. Smith (SL: Annemaree Michigan), Five Sparrows Counseling and Educational Services.
Description: From their inception, virtual worlds have attracted educators from many disciplines, and benefits for both students and educators for networking and immersive experience have been well documented. But, while virtual world education has engaged multiple disciplines to learn with, from, and about each other, the potential for significant innovation in interprofessional education (IPE) has not been fully realized. This presentation outlines ways to re-vision and implement IPE in virtual worlds.

Participants will be able to describe ways to re-vision and implement IPE in virtual worlds
Participants will be able to discuss the utility of the flexible learning model for virtual training

Lizard of ARS: Secondary students design parody masks and installation on the OpenSim
Apr 6 @ 03:00 PM – 04:00 PM

Presenter: Mary Stokrocki (SL: MaryLou Goldrosen), Educators and Trainers
Description: After exploring the OpenSim with students for four years, I invited them to revise my parody play, The Lizards of ARS/ART, a satiric reinterpretation of Baum’s (1900) The Wizard of Oz. Using participatory action research, I gathered their 2-D mask images converted into 3-D forms and related parodies. Two older students arranged them in two different installations on the OpenSim virtual world. This communal experience helped develop imaginative play, digital skills, and diverse art meaning.

Participants will be learn to revise the model parody, transfer 2-D mask, build 3-D form, and install
