I believe the answer to virtual worlds in elementary school
may be within the Edusim environment. A
protected world where educators along with their students can experiment and
create learning environments.
We experimented tonight with the opensource 3D virtual software
that has been created to use with interactive whiteboards. I believe it can also be used within a lab
situation to give each student the ability to interact within a virtual world
from their on computer.
You need to view the video so you will have some background
information before you listen to the podcast.
Even then, because we played with this virtual world using Yugma, it may
be difficult to follow.
I still don’t understand how to have more than one avatar in
a world. When you figure that part out –
please let me know.
