It’s that time of year again, time to venture into the world of 3D learning and discover all the wonderful attributes of 3D Virtual Immersive Environments. I added a link the the “green” house on the MIST Second Life Wiki. This will allow any student who wants to return to the “green” house and who forgot to landmark the location.
In class we discussed why 3D was important for the future of learning and took a little tour in Second Life, we didn’t get to build but hope to do so next week for a little. We discussed assignments and got Note Cards to guide us through various locations in Second Life.
So, three questions for students about the first class:
What was the strangest part of participating within a 3D virtual world? What was unsettling or uneasy about 3D virtual immersive environment?
Having been in a virtual 3D world for a visit and seeing one example of a 3D educational environment, what do you think are the possibilities of 3D virtual worlds for learning?
What do you think would be the biggest obstacle in implementing a 3D learning environment in a school or organization?
