713 views

Published on

Slides from my presentation to the Virtual Worlds Education Roundtable event on 6 Mar 14 in Second Life.

The important slides are:

- revisiting ReLive2011 in order to work out why virtual worlds have not taken off in education, and where they might go
- look at an adaptive approach to education in virtual worlds on an episode by episode basis, and how the different options available in terms of approach may map onto different stages/approaches to learning and Bybee's 5E's
