Last night as educators and educational researchers danced to “eightes” tunes, bowled, skated and arm wrestled, Sheila Yoshikawa (SL) was crowned ( yes – she did receive a crown) the winner of the December Challenge. She won with her Machinima made on screenr “Information Literacy on Infolit iSchool“ But wait – there’s more! ARVEL SIG is extending the contest in January with 3 categories – Virtual Worlds, AR and Games. So use some sort of screencast software ( www.screenr.com suggested by ARVEL SIG) and make a five minute video of how you are using virtual worlds, AR or games.
And whatever you make for SIG ARVEL please consider also submitted to the Machinima Stream for VWBPE!http://www.vwbpe.org/calls/machinima
