Integrating VR into a 100% Online Education Graduate Program
I watched the recording today. The event took place on 12 September and the speaker was Dr. Eileen O'Connor working at the State University of New York - SUNY.
You can get access to the recording online https://youtu.be/nyosxwlgrCU
The speaker presented an online Education Graduate Program in Emerging Technologies.
I had alredy learnt about some educators experimenting online and I really appreciated what she described and what learners had done.
Learners can work in virtual worlds, work together and share what they have been working on. She talked about a VR residency and also about students creating their own islands.
The virtual word was in Kitely: hop://grid.kitely.com:8002/Marian%20Island/126/111/22
When I listened to the presentation I thought that I would really like to work for my CP with other teachers and working in a similar virtual world. However, I do not know if in Italy we have such educators experimenting at university.
An interesting feature could be also to work with secondary school students and working on projects .
I have already entered the grid and honestly I can say that it is an interesting new world for learning.
How did I feel when I saw what's going on in this program? I was surprised and got interested.
I thought that perhaps we could try to work in a learning environment which is not the traditional one.
I do teach in a secondary school, as a result I teach younger learners. Working with university students and older learners must be less demanding.
I do hope to learn more about new learning environments and perhaps I will try to work in some.
Meanwhile I will check what Kitely can offer in terms of learning opportunities.
