Oh, The Things You Can Build!!!

VWBPE 2022 Immersive Experience
Presented: April 9, 2022
Hosts: Barbara McQueen / Barbara Novelli, SLESL: Start Living English as a Second Language; Heike Philp / Heike Philp_2, EduNation in Second Life and Kitely

The biggest problem we’ve had with helping teachers and students become comfortable with working in virtual worlds is their being overwhelmed with the basics of moving and building. So I have put together an OpenSim immersive experience to walk people through these basics, so they can grasp that actually they can do wonderful things without being a technology wizard. Together we will build examples of animal and body part idioms and discuss the many lessons that can be created from these builds.

  • Participants will be able to create and modify objects for awesome language lessons on idioms.
  • Participants will be able to see and play with many additional teachings options via a sim car rally
