Transcript

  • 1. D. I. Y. Build Blueprints For Creating Engaging & Effective Virtual World Learning Simulations by Kay McLennan, Ph.D. Professor of Practice Tulane University © Kay McLennan, 2013
  • 2. Presentation Overview • Student Preferences for Simulation Types & Features • How to Adapt Virtual World Builds to Student Preferences • Elements in a Scenario Game – Data Detectives Game Case Study • D.I.Y. Approach and Content Sources • Q. & A. Period
  • 3. Background: The OpenSim Advantage Move to OpenSim in 2010 Markedly Increased Voluntary Participation Rates (from 10% to 33%, with spikes to over 50%) The OpenSim Advantages include: • • Pre-Stocked Avatar Inventories • Pre-Positioned Avatars • No X-Rated Warnings Needed • More Space for More Simulations • 2010 Pre-Created Avatars OAR/IAR Files = More Flexibility 2013
  • 4. Student Preferences… … for Virtual World Learning Simulations
  • 5. It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. - Sherlock Holmes in "A Scandal in Bohemia" by Arthur Conan Doyle vs Top Student Pick My Top Pick © Kay McLennan, 2013
  • 6. Virtual World for Education Basics Checklist • Asynchronous Learning:  • [Non Novices] Real Time Sessions Too: • Need for Expansive Builds:   [Non Novices] SHOULD Be Mandatory:  • [Novices] Should NOT be Mandatory: • 
  • 7. Quantifying Engagement* *Only students that self-select themselves for online and virtual world learning were surveyed. Likert Agreement Scale 5.0 = Strongly Agree; 4.0 = Agree 3.0 = Neither Agree or Disagree 2.0 = Disagree 1.0 = Strongly Disagree
  • 8. More Student Feedback • I think it is an awesome addition. I love the idea of real time discussions. • This is my second experience in the virtual world and I think it should be offered in every class. It makes the class more interesting. • …The virtual world presentations were more interesting and caused me to "want" to read and learn. I found myself wandering into other buildings [not related to my class] where I discovered and learned [from different course simulations]. • Keeping studies interesting is a factor that will lead to a higher success rate. I see this evolving into something great for education at Tulane and more.
  • 9. Interactivity, Engagement, and Increased Learning by Instructional Delivery Method Correlation Coefficients *Learner = Self-selecting virtual world participant non traditional (28 years old on average) students. Correlation coefficient values between 0 and 0.3 (or 0 and -0.3) indicate a weak positive (or negative) relationship. Correlation coefficient values between 0.3 and 0.7 (or -0.3 and -0.7) indicate a moderate positive (or negative) relationship. Correlation coefficient values between 0.7 and 1.0 (or -0.7 and -1.0) indicate a strong positive (or negative) relationship.
