VWBPE Event to be in July 2013
Daniel Voyager last week reported that at the NonProfit Commons meeting then, there was an announcement that the VWBPE, Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education, would be holding their sixth annual conference in Second Life in July 2013.
Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education is a global grass-roots community event focusing on education in immersive 3D environments. This open “indie”conference is organized by educators to provide an opportunity to showcase the learning that takes place in this community of practice. All educators are encouraged to present, attend and take part in this discussion of collaborative deeper learning and co-presence in virtual worlds and games.
The VWBPE event last year took place over several days last March, with numerous events and discussions, such as a dragon parade Gemma Cleanslate covered.
