This weekend, from March 17-19, the 4th annual Virtual World Best Practices in Education Conference is coming to Second Life. The gathering is intended to provide “opportunities for participants in all virtual worlds to share current teaching, learning, and research practices in 3D virtual environments.”
I’m blown away checking out the schedule for the weekend. Among the interesting talks and workshops:
- University of Leicester Virtual Genetics Lab Tour
- Featured Tour: World of Warcraft in Schools
- Best Practices in Virtual Architecture for Education-Related Projects
- Understanding the Holocaust Using Virtual Worlds
Plus there’s a whole Portuguese language track, a teen fair and a steampunk ball at the end!
