Live 3D, Learn 3D

Building Global Learning Communities through Collaboration, Knowledge Networks and Play

Saturday October 14, 2000 10am PDT (1pm EST) to 3pm PDT (6pm EST) In the Education Universe, AWedu in Cyberspace

This year's conference in cyberspace will feature projects, programs and people who have been using and developing these spaces for educational purposes. This event will open up for one day a lens into where we are, where we are going, and how we are getting there as we redefine the educational experience through digital collaboration in compelling, original, avatar inhabited learning environments.

This worldwide event in cyberspace will feature multiple speaking tracks, tour streams through education worlds, a poster session in the VLearn Library and Birds of a Feather breakout sessions in selected AWedu worlds. Physical "nodes" located at Institutions around the globe will tap in via computer labs and large screen local broadcasts to see, talk about and experience this event as well as distributed virtual participants coming in from outside of the campus. A special panel on teleimmersion, telepresence and virtual worlds will link VLearn3D 2000 with the exciting activities of Avatars 2000 - Cyberspace for a New Millenium on October 15, 2000.

THE SPEAKER TRACKS - The tracks will feature discussions and examples of the use of virtual worlds in education, integration of gaming technology into virtual learning activities, issues surrounding design and technology, and more. Our speakers will come in from around the world to share their work with you.
