“Virtual Bookshop: From Consuming Knowledge to Producing Knowledge” for the January 25th NonProfit Commons Meeting

This Friday, January 25th, Nonprofit Commons is happy to feature Ines Sogura (Ines Puspita), who will be discussing her educational “Virtual Bookshop” project, teaching students in Indonesia using participatory storytelling, virtual worlds and augmented reality technologies.    

Bio: Learning and teaching have been Ines’ lifetime passions but it was not until her involvement in the Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations in South Korea in 1995 that she encountered the important role of technology in learning and teaching. Since then, she has become an avid advocate of the use of technology in education for formal and informal learning in Indonesia.

Ines is currently a Science teacher at the Deutsche Internationale Schule (German International School) in Indonesia, where she teaches 4th through 8th grade students. As an educator, she continues to evolve along with technology by incorporating Web 1.0, Web 2.0, and Web 3.0 into her classroom.
