Using I/VLEs in K-12: Serious Game Conference: David W. Deeds

  1. 1. Using I/VLEs in K-12 David W. Deeds
  2. 2. Using I/VLEs in K-12 Defining Terms: • Virtual Reality (VR) vs. Virtual Worlds (VW) • Immersive or Virtual Learning Environment (I/VLE) sounds more impressive! • But in VR lingo, VWs are not Immersive, they’re Desktop/Third or First Person • VR still not a Reality (!) for most schools because of budget and other limitations • VR will hopefully rejuvenate VW interest • Mainly Second Life and OpenSimulator, but also Minecraft…and others like WoW • Are they games? Yes, but not all serious!
  3. 3. Using I/VLEs in K-12 Quick Introduction: • 17 years in education: 8 in higher ed, 9 in K-12; 7 different countries…so far! • Currently the Director of Information and Learning Technologies for Schutz American School in Alexandria, Egypt • Been using Virtual Worlds since 2006
  4. 4. Using I/VLEs in K-12 Presentation Goals: • Not a research paper, I won’t be citing references (although I’m listing a few) • Want to cover some of the basic theories behind using VWs in education
  5. 5. Using I/VLEs in K-12 Presentation Goals: • Not as much text (as usual)!
  6. 6. Using I/VLEs in K-12 Lots of (maybe too much?) background: Serious Play 2016: slideshare.net/davidwdeeds/serious-play- conference-edtech-evangelist-converting-the-unbelievers- 63730565 Serious Play 2017: slideshare.net/davidwdeeds/david-w-deeds- its-not-whether-you-win-or-lose-serious-play-conference-2017 • My third consecutive year presenting for Serious Play/Game • Check out my SlideShare archives for more info

  10. 10. Using I/VLEs in K-12 But OpenSimulator is the future of VWs in K-12.

  12. 12. Using I/VLEs in K-12 Is it 2018 or 1918? We need a disruptive innovation.
  13. 13. Using I/VLEs in K-12 Think your school’s ready for change? Think again.
  14. 14. Using I/VLEs in K-12 Pedagogical Approach: • We’ve been changing the learning experience or process (e.g., 1:1 programs) • And the classrooms too (e.g., seating arrangements, Makerspaces) • We talk a lot (!!) about making teaching and learning student-centric • But administrators, teachers and even students freak out when you actually try changing the overall pedagogy • What do VWs offer? Some theories include…
