The folks at EduFinland are hosting a conference on October 27 called the “Midnight to Noon Conference for Second Life Educators and Researchers.”
Although the conference is being held in Second Life, the presentations will discuss a wide range of research across many different virtual world platforms.
I’ll be speaking on a panel at 8am EDT on “The Future of Learning in Virtual Worlds.”
At 10am EDT I’ll be giving a keynote presentation titled “The Significance of Contextual Flow – Exploring Jibe and Critical Affordances of Web-Based Virtual Worlds.” And you can participate in my keynote by visiting my Jibe world on the web during the presentation.
For more details, check out the conference website. Here’s a summary of the agenda:
A 12 hour conference in Second Life for educators and researchers on education and virtual worlds with invited speakers from Europe and the US. The conference features presentations, panels, workshops, excursion and many other types of activitities.
Mark the date Thursday October 27, 2011 in your calendar now and join us in EduFinland archipelago on the lecture theatre on EduFinland III from midnight to noon (PDT).
The researchers and educators at EduFinland have been doing outstanding work over the years, and I had the privilege of meeting many of them in my last trip to Finland. So I’m really looking forward to this conference.
Hope to see you there!
