Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 23, 2:08 PM

In a post-modern and post-structural era, the language used i.e. make students is very modernist. It seems counter to more independence. This does not mean that using Augmented Reality is not important. We might want to decide how it is used in ways that shifts the way we currently do School.

OSgrid down, Zetamex offers early migration to ZetaWorlds - Hypergrid Business

OSgrid down, Zetamex offers early migration to ZetaWorlds - Hypergrid Business | Immersive World Technology | Scoop.it

Update: OSgrid was still down Wednesday morning, but with a new status update: “The techs are working on the server attempting to get the RAID [asset storage] rebuilt, they have not said how long this might take.”

OSgrid went down unexpectedly yesterday with no communication other than a terse Twitter announcement yesterday, followed by an update earlier today that the part of the grid’s RAID storage that handles assets has been lost.

There was no information about how long the downtime was expected to last.

I’ll be attending the entire conference, and I’m honored to be giving the opening keynote presentation.   Here’s what I’ll be talking about:
