[08:48] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): Ok, awesome
[08:48] Buffy Beale: cheering for Jerry!
[08:49] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): So we’ve been focused these last few weeks
[08:49] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): on this project of collecting news & other interesting items
[08:49] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): that would help reflect the kinds of postive work that’s being done
[08:49] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): in SL & other virtual world settings
[08:50] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): The idea has been to share this perspective with the world at large
[08:50] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): to help balance out the media image of SL
[08:50] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): as a place primarily inhabited by vampire role players
[08:51] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): and virtual sex
[08:51] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): or vampire role players having virtual sex… 😉
[08:51] Buffy Beale: lol
[08:51] Red (talkwithmarie): oh
[08:51] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): So over the last several weeks I’ve been gathering some items I thought were especially interesting from this standpoint to share
[08:51] globalkids Bixby: Second Life: It’s not just for vampire role players having sex anymore…
[08:52] Lyr Lobo: /me chuckles and nods
[08:52] Lotta Flux: giggles
[08:52] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): And as I collected them, I realized they were falling into three basic categories
[08:52] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): and I’ll share these items within these categories now
[08:52] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): First category: How People Think & Behave ~ the Virtual & One Another (Exploring & perhaps changing how we perceive virtual spaces & relate):
[08:53] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): * TEDxVictoria – Alexandra Samuel: Ten Reasons to Stop Apologizing for your Online Life:

* The Great Online Migration:…

* There is No “Cyberspace”:

* The Real and the Loss of Cyberspace:…

* Twitter is to humans as….grooming is to primates?:

* 3D Interactions between Virtual Worlds and Real Life in an E-Learning Community:
[08:54] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): Alexandra Samuel is a blogger I’ve begun to follow who writes about virtual worlds among other things, and I think she does some work that is especially accessible.
[08:54] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): The second 2 items a bit more cerebral but still fascinating, having to do with examining this distinction people commonly have between the “real” & “virtual”
[08:55] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): All these can help people to perhaps think differently about VW settings…
[08:55] Rik Panganiban (rik.riel): (might need to speed up, in light of our agenda. Sorry.)
[08:55] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): Righto!
[08:55] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): Here it comes.. 😉
[08:55] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): Cases of SL Use Applied to Helping:

* Avatars Help People Develop Real World Skills:

* DoD gives PTSD help ‘second life’ in virtual reality:…

* Delivering Care in Second Life:

* Virtual gym ‘helps weight loss’:
Second Life for Medical Education:

* An Exploration of Why People Participate in Second Life Social Support Groups:
[08:56] Second Life: Katydid Something is online.
[08:56] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): Third & last category:
[08:56] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): Cases of SL Use Applied to Education:

* Come visit the Webb Telescope on Second Life!:

* Second Life as an Archaeological Tool (Podcast 5):
[08:56] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): Thanks to Gentle Heron, I was able to attend at least the last 2 days of the VWBPE
[08:57] Gentle Heron: VWBPE is an amazing event!
[08:57] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): and learned about all of the efforts in education using SL & VWS

[09:10] globalkids Bixby: Rik is going to be interviewing me (which, if you can get him to, is pretty cool)

[09:10] globalkids Bixby: and say that you shoudl egt reay for q barage of typos
[09:10] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): 😉
[09:10] globalkids Bixby: as I decided to be more spontaneous today rarther then pre-type what i would sayt
[09:10] globalkids Bixby: Global Kids is the premier non-profit educational organization for global learning and youth development. We work to ensure that urban youth have the knowledge, skills, experiences and values they need to succeed in school, participate effectively in the democratic process, and achieve leadership in their communities and on the global stage.
[09:11] globalkids Bixby: My area, the Online Leadership Program, integrates a youth development approach and international and public policy issues into youth media programs that build digital literacy, foster substantive online dialogues, develop resources for educators, and promote civic participation.
[09:11] globalkids Bixby: About ten years ago we began to work with your youth in NYC to design video games.
[09:11] globalkids Bixby: One, Ayiti: The Cost of Life, has been played millions of times. (if you know the url, please share it)
[09:11] globalkids Bixby: After many years, we have diversified the program and have a wide range of youth-gaming programs: web-based, mobile, etc.
[09:12] globalkids Bixby: But the original program, Playing For Keeps, made a big shift this year, which we are really excited about
[09:12] Rik Panganiban (rik.riel):
[09:12] globalkids Bixby: With funding from the AMD foundation,
[09:12] globalkids Bixby: we are working with E-Line Media, which runs Gamestar Mechanic
[09:12] globalkids Bixby: IS anyone here familiar with GM?
[09:13] InKenzo at Amoration (in.kenzo): yes
[09:13] InKenzo at Amoration (in.kenzo): 🙂
[09:13] Ozma Malibu: yes
[09:13] Rhiannon Chatnoir: /me is
[09:13] Glitteractica Cookie: I have heard of GM
[09:13] globalkids Bixby: Gamestar is a web-based tool for making web-based games, without needing to know programming. It’s pretty cool.
[09:13] globalkids Bixby:
[09:14] Glitteractica Cookie: oh yes. that’s right
[09:14] globalkids Bixby: well, they run these Social Impact Game DEsign Challenges, in which youth are given a topic and asked to make a game around it
[09:13] globalkids Bixby: sustainable living. non-violence. Stuff like that
[09:14] globalkids Bixby: So this year, P4K is working with E-Line to co-design and co-run the challenge
[09:14] globalkids Bixby: The youth worked all year to become GM mastes, research social issues, and then design their own challenge
[09:14] globalkids Bixby: and the first
[09:14] globalkids Bixby: one
[09:14] globalkids Bixby: launched
[09:14] globalkids Bixby: this
[09:14] globalkids Bixby: month
[09:14] globalkids Bixby: (*cheers*)
[09:14] globalkids Bixby: The youth picked the topic of ending war and named it the Playing For Peace challenge.
[09:15] globalkids Bixby: You can see it at:
[09:15] Jerry Buchko MA AFC: (thinking a lot of the educators at vwbpe would have probably been very interested in something like Gamestar…)
[09:15] globalkids Bixby: Over March and April, youth can go into GM, design their own game, and submit it. In May one youth will win a new laptop, with other cool prizes
[09:15] globalkids Bixby: more importantly, scores of good games will be produced, by youth, judged by youth, for youth, on the topic.
[09:15] globalkids Bixby: I am not sure if I am,,,
[09:15] Gentle HeronGentle Heron will point VWBPE organizers at GlobalKids as a potential presenter for next year’s session.
[09:16] globalkids Bixby: ooh – lost Rik
[09:16] globalkids Bixby: (I will fill in the questins he might have asked)
[09:16] Lotta Flux: great idea, Gentle
[09:16] globalkids Bixby: I am not sure if I am support to tell you this but, well, let me ask you first.
[09:16] globalkids Bixby: Over two months, how many game submissons do you think we should expect?
[09:16] globalkids Bixby: Just shout it out
[09:17] 5,000
[09:17] Barry has presented in previous years at VWBPE
[09:17] @Gentle, Yes, great idea
[09:17] Lotta Flux: a ginormous amount 🙂
[09:17] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): 200?
[09:17] Ozma Malibu: 20?
[09:17] Coughran Mayo: it’s the interwebs….5,000 is nothing
[09:17] globalkids Bixby: We had hoped to have more than 500, after two months.
[09:17] Lotta Flux: ooh, you wil
[09:17] globalkids Bixby: But after just two weeks, we already have 400 entries, with 6 weeks to go
[09:17] Lotta Flux: will*
[09:17] InKenzo at Amoration (in.kenzo): nice!
[09:17] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): wow!
[09:17] Buffy Beale: wow!
[09:18] Rhiannon Chatnoir: and you can read up on a lot of the ongoing work that Barry and others at OLP at Global Kids have done through the years on their blog
[09:18] Lotta Flux: yep!
[09:18] Ozma Malibu: wow
[09:18] globalkids Bixby: In any case, as you can imagine, the youth are both excited and a little overwhelmed at the possibilies.
[09:18] Lotta Flux: ginormous 🙂
[09:18] globalkids Bixby: The youth also will present publically about it – they will be talking this Tuesday in NYC at a teacher meet-up about their work in the program, and next month a tthe annual Global Kids confernece.
[09:18] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): that’s awesome
[09:18] Lotta Flux: judging will be difficult
[09:18] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): i’ll bet
[09:19] globalkids Bixby: Also, to support the Challenge, they created a sample game about two countries at war over war – driven by the elites- and the player/protaganist who unites the masses to end the war
[09:19] globalkids Bixby: So that’s essentially the overview. There WILL be a second challenge. But I am not sure if you all want to know the topic just yet…
[09:19] Rik Panganiban (rik.riel): YES!
[09:19] globalkids Bixby: Okay, Twist my arm.
[09:19] Rik Panganiban (rik.riel): please please please
[09:20] globalkids Bixby: The general topic is about how we are affected
[09:20] globalkids Bixby: by media – the good, the bad and the ugly.
[09:20] Lotta Flux: very interesting!
[09:20] Rik Panganiban (rik.riel): hmmm interesting
[09:20] Jerry Buchko MA AFC (jerrybuchko): love it
[09:20] globalkids Bixby: But what a broad topic, right? So their challenge now is to focus it down – e.g. when is a time that wikipedia made you cry
[09:21] globalkids Bixby: and then connect that make to designing a game – design a game about a time watching youtube made you feel generous
[09:21] globalkids Bixby: You get the idea
[09:21] globalkids Bixby: Okay, that’s all I got. 🙂
[09:21] Rik Panganiban (rik.riel): Nice!
[09:21] globalkids Bixby: What else might you like to know about the program?

There’s a research opportunity right now posted in the Healthinfo Island Research Pavilion, only open through today, that could earn US citizens 30 US (not Linden!) dollars for a phone interview.
[09:41] Gentle Heron:
Go inside, click the poster, and follow the directions on the notecard. (There are several specific opportunities for different populations. The one that ends today is by First Opinions.)
OR you can IM Andy Evans for a notecard.

[09:56] Hour Destiny: Drat. I showed up a little too late. Unity3D is a free 3D game platform and until April 8th, you can get the iOS and Android packages for free. That should help youth make games.
[09:57] Brena Benoir: I will pass that along and see who we can get coordianted to help compile a review
[09:57] Gentle Heron: oh gosh I don’t think you can summarize VWBPE in 5 minutes, Rik.

[09:58] Gentle Heron: exactly Ozma, and they are still up over there!
[09:59] Rik Panganiban (rik.riel): and then links to more recaps online
[09:59] Hour Destiny: Anyone know if any of the sessions were recorded?
[09:59] Rik Panganiban (rik.riel): is that possible?
[10:00] Hour Destiny: I don’t see why not.
[10:00] Rhiannon Chatnoir: they usually do record some, not sure this time
[10:00] Gentle Heron: Some portions of some sessions were recorded, I know.
[10:00] Sister Abeyante: Those in text are archived by the presenter. You can probably just ask and get a full transcript.
[10:00] Gentle Heron: And the ones given in text are available from the presenters
[10:00] Ozma Malibu: we will figure it out, Rik, for you
[10:00] Gentle Heron: and some presenters put their slides on SlideShare
