Educators and Trainers
Teachers are often unnerved by how much they need to learn to best use virtual worlds as a part of their technology arsenal. So they don’t use virtual worlds or only use them in a very limited way. This presentation will detail:
- The most important virtual world skills to learn and fun ways to teach them
- Simple to complex games and roleplays that deeply immerse students
- Tasks for blogs, Moodle, Skype, machinima, social media, online conference rooms, and other educational software and devices
Participants will be able to create virtual classes that are flipped, gamified, and student-led.
Participants will be able to modify the presented tools/techniques to enhance teaching any subject.
