In this presentation, John will share his experiences using virtual world
technology to enhance education and his current work at ReactionGrid to
create web and mobile-based virtual word platforms. He will share success
stories from university environments and describe best practices for
integrating virtual worlds into a broader curriculum. He will also explain
common pitfalls when exploring virtual world technologies and highlight the
unique affordances of virtual worlds when they are interwoven with existing
social media (e.g., Facebook) and web-based educational content.
