The Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education is a grass-roots community conference; it is YOUR conference, and your chance to share your experiences with the rest of your community. We have already received some excellent submissions but we would like more!
The Call for Proposals (papers, workshops, games, Machinima and posters) has been extended to midnight 15th February, 2012. All that’s required is a 50 – 100 word abstract (full papers required for research stream) that indicates how your work illustrates best practices in education. http://www.vwbpe.org/calls/2012-call-for-proposals
Describes how your work might be applied to a particular or multiple sectors of education, i.e. K-12, large universities, community colleges, adult education, etc. Tell us how you learn and teach. Tell us your stories of what works well and what can be done better. Where does learning happen for you? Who do you teach? How to you engage learners? Why is learning within the virtual important to you? What is the key learning you want to share with others?
We do want to especially encourage submissions for the Machinima Fest http://www.vwbpe.org/calls/machinima ,
Poster Event http://www.vwbpe.org/blog/posters-cfp and
