John Jamison, Creative Director and Dream Realizer at ImagiLearning, Inc. will be our guest lecturer on Tuesday, February 10, 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM PST at VCARA. John will speak on Unity3d and Second Life. Unity3d offers educators using Second Life and OpenSim an opportunity to create more sophisticated activities, and increase accessibility to those activities. However, simply creating “pretty” virtual environments does not necessarily hold learner interest, or enhance the learning that occurs. This session explores an approach to designing Unity3d virtual learning activities that match the “virtual creation” with the learning goals, resulting in a learner experience that increases motivation and learning.
