Recorded: Wednesday, April 17th, 2013 @ 8:30 am - 8:50 am HST
Duration: 20 minutes
Virtualization technology, integration of multiple social media, digital texts, cloud based learning management systems and advanced virtual worlds, promise both an enrichment of the learning experience and an evolutionary shift in the content and and presentation of the classroom experience, including interactive objects and “learning by doing”. These new tools will allow the learning process can become mainly interactive, rather than mainly reactive.
This presentation describes enabling changes in virtual communities, virtual learning and computer interactive technology in the present and near term. An operational virtual world currently under construction is used as an example. It shows how these tools are being applied to real situations and how they can be applied to our own classrooms.
