Death by Acronym
VWBPE 2021 Presentation
Presented: March 18, 2021
Speaker: Spiff Whitfield (SL)
American Education is full of acronyms. NCLB, FERPA, DASA, APPR, to list just a few. Behind these acronyms are laws, policies, and mandates that have real impacts on teachers and ultimately students. While some may be good intentioned and valuable, many only serve to create one more layer of bureaucracy and paper work that hinders innovation and creativity. So why haven't Virtual Worlds become part of our educational landscape? The answer is in the acronyms.
- Educators will examine the impact on educational policies on Virtual Environments.
