Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference, Mar 03, 2008 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
This presentation will consider the common aspects of immersive experiences in learning, what kind of experiences are available in "Second Life" a popular three-dimensional virtual world (http://www.secondlife.com) and the issues involved in using Second Life for immersive learning and role-play in academic settings. Finally, we will offer an overview of the issues involved in creating role-plays in Second Life to enable teachers to have a ready toolkit for creating their own.
