Paper or electronic? Reading to children important no matter the medium

Paper or electronic? Reading to children important no matter the medium | Around L-ICT | Scoop.it

Today's book has changed, but reading to children hasn't.

 

Children no longer need to flip a page, but can tap a screen on an electronic reader to continue reading. Electronic books are now more interactive than traditional books.

But that doesn't mean sitting down with a child with a book in your lap should end, according to some educators.

New World Notes: OpenSim Study on Virtual Treatment for Phobia Needs Cars!

New World Notes: OpenSim Study on Virtual Treatment for Phobia Needs Cars! | Around L-ICT | Scoop.it

A very cool OpenSim research project for use in real world therapy is in need of virtual cars. It's being run by Jorge "Eggy Lippmann" Lima, a longtime SLer, for the University of Lisbon, and the study will use virtual world experiences as a way of treating people with real phobias. Specifically, as Eggy explains, "[S]ome people with agoraphobia will have panic attacks when driving over bridges and into tunnels, or even walk out of their car in fear if they get stuck in traffic." Eggy will show therapists and their patients virtual renditions of cars in various scenarios, "and I will ask them and their patients to answer some questions regarding whether or not they feel the therapy is helping them." Eggy is looking for modern mesh-based cars to use in OpenSim, and of course, your contribution will be acknowledged in papers published on the project. And you might even help some folks deal with their phobias. Go here for more info on the project and contact info on Eggy.
