  • QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Modding the Metaverse: The Pedagogy of Participation AoIR 2007 Tracy Ke nne dy, University of Toronto / Virtual Research Assistant, GNW C Jo anna Ro binso n, Brock University / Virtual Research Assistant, GNW C Dr. Ge rri Sinclair, Director, GNW C Centre for Digital Media http://mdm.gnwc.ca/ QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture.

  • QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Traditional Didactic Modes of Learning • Lecture styles with a top-down approach • Information delivery is linear and static • Legitimates disciplinary discourses, knowledge & information • Problematic power relations between professor and student - hierarchies • Does not always allow for nor encourage constructive interaction between students, and between students and instructors QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture.
  • QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Participatory Pedagogy Content: •Incorporating personal experiences, skills, knowledge and individual context Process: •More interactive and empowering pedagogical style of learning and knowledge construction inside and outside the classroom •Students take an active role in the learning process QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture.
  • QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Internet & Education Web 2.0 Web 3D • • Collective & interactive Incorporates Web 2.0 features • • Synchronous Self expression & self direction • • Flat Web Diverse ways of learning – ie: Wikis, Blogs, Moodle etc • Hands-on technical skill building • Three dimensional spaces • Transformation of personal experience and researched content into a tangible visual form • Virtual Worlds – ie: Second Life, Active Worlds, Metaplace, Google Sketch up and more...

  • QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Why Participatory Pedagogy? • Self directed learning can increase their sense of empowerment • Using student’s own knowledge can improve the perceived relevance of subject material and therefore can improve their motivation • Can allowing students to gain insight into their own value systems and improve their confidence • Exercising reflexivity and contemplation can improve their level of ‘self- awareness’ skills generally QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. (Aldrich 2004)
  • QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Why Participatory Pedagogy? • We are living in a time of emerging participatory culture, fluency in this culture is an asset • Need to prepare students for work in the information age • ICT use among students is pervasive – mp3 players, cell phones, laptops, video games – Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, Flickr, Skype QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture.

Modding the Metaverse Workshops • How can a group collaborate to modify or create their own learning space? • What are the processes involved? • What are some of the factors that must be considered? • How might the findings be beneficial to our students?

  • QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Modding the Metaverse Workshops • Call for participants sent to potential students, SL educators & researchers lists • 3 workshops: 2 discussions, 1 modding & building Objectives: • Support small teams and large group work • Individual/reflexive tasks • Design and creation • Flexibility – can one environment facilitate all of these things?

What we learned • Exercise helped us think about how we might envision virtual learning spaces • Collaborative modding and building is possible in SL • A design brief is only useful if participants adhere to it • Roles need to be well defined in the team • Need to have a clear concept of what the space will be used for to best facilitate learning objectives QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture.
  • QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. What we learned • Skill divides bring about challenges in participation in building and even discussing • Circular designs emerged • Builds had no roof in many cases • Disagreement among participants as to whether replicating first life classrooms was useful in virtual spaces • Placement/style of screen/display/whiteboard device was important in most designs QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture.

CDM’s other Second Life activities to date: • Blended reality open house • Com unity partner Vancouver Police Departm m ent's Second Life experim ent • Blended reality book launch by MDM advisory board m ber W illiam em Gibson • Hosting a virtual conference - CITASA MC 3.0 2007 • Blended reality program launch with Prem Cam ier pbell • Projects for ‘The Visual Story’ and ‘Building Virtual W orlds’ • Exercises and exploration in ‘Interdisciplinary Im prov’ • Use in courses & future events proposed QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture.
