Be Epic!

ep·ic

/ˈɛpep-ik] adjective

 

An epic (from theGreek adjective ἐπικός (epikos), from ἔπος (epos) “word, story, poem”) is a lengthy narrative poem ordinarily concerning a serious subject containing details of heroic deeds and events significant to a culture or nation. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epic_poetry

“Be all Epic and stuff.” a classroom mantra in Mrs. Sheehy’s WoW in School http://wowinschool.pbworks.com.

 

 

Epic is a level of item quality between rare and legendary. http://www.wowwiki.com/Epic

 

 

Epic is being able to attend a virtual conference with cutting edge participants and brilliant bleeding edge presenters and explore engagement, immersion and NPIRL* education. http://www.vwbpe.org

 

 

*Not Possible in Real Life

 

Come and be part of this epic exploration of best practices for virtual worlds in education (VWBPE). Now in its fifth year, this free, grass-roots conference provides opportunities for participants in all virtual worlds and games to share innovative teaching, learning and research practices in 3D virtual environments. The 2011 VWBPE event in Second Life was attended by almost 2,500 individuals representing 91 countries and territories around the globe. This year, sessions and tours will continue to be held in Second Life, other virtual worlds and game platforms.

 

This conference is one of the few opportunities where educational innovators, teachers and designers can gather on a global scale for serious discussions and feedback about what is happening in 3D virtual environments and games. We encourage a wide range of content delivery options including lectures, guided virtual tours across platforms, research presentations, workshops and tutorials, machinima, discussion and round-tables. Included in this event are also friendly people’s choice competitions to celebrate the best in educational machinima, interactive posters and user created games.

This three day conference provides opportunities for sharing and further understanding of virtual world technology. Whether your epic adventures take you to Second Life, OpenSim, World of Warcraft, Minecraft or Club Penguin – this is your community event.

 

Attendance is free and some sessions may be livestreamed and recorded.

Getting Connected

If the life of our program is in the community, what exactly has our community been doing?

 

We’ve been learning about what a responsible learner looks like.

We’ve been learning about putting balance in our lives.

We can’t spend all of our time using a laptop!We are learning how to collaborate online.

We are learning how to be respectful and how to protect our privacy.

Most importantly we are leveraging our laptops to access information, to share, and to publish our work.

SPECIAL MEETING at VWBPE

SPECIAL MEETING at VWBPE


To: VW@listserv.educause.edu, "SL Educators (The SLED List)"
< educators@lists.secondlife.com >

Tomorrow VWER meets at the VWBPE conference, and note the special time this week only:

 

3pm SL Time. For your local time, see http://bit.ly/y0jtJo

 

Topic: "Resistance is futile: making a case for virtual worlds"

 

In this climate, with a weak economy and technologists focusing more on mobile technology and less of virtual worlds, how DO we make a case for 3D immersive learning? Come to this meeting to share resources and strategies.

 

We will moderate and herd the many cats! Last year 173 avatars attended our roundtable. We have four sims linked by chat bridge to hold the crowd.

Peter Norvig, director de Investigación de Google, clausurará NANEC2011/12 | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it

Dolors Capdet de Universitat de València http://www.uv.es/ invita .....

 

La última conferencia del curso será el viernes, dia 23, a las 18.00 hora española. No os la podeis perder porque tendremos a un número 1 mundial en su especialidad: Peter Norvig.

 

Peter Norvig (  http://norvig.com/resume.html ; ), actual Director de Investigación de Google Inc., y anteriormente jefe de la División de Ciencias de la Computación en el Centro de Investigación Ames de la NASA.

Es además de un reputado autor, profesor e investigador (  http://norvig.com/ ), uno de los impulsores del Open Course más masivo que se ha desarrollado hasta ahora: Introducción a la Inteligencia Artificial (  https://www.ai-class.com/ ), que tuvo lugar entre el 10 de octubre y 18 de diciembre de 2011 con una inscripción de más de 200000 alumnos y 23.000 aprobados. Este curso, que fue impulsado desde el Laboratorio de Computación de la Universidad de Stanford, ha desembocado en la creación del proyecto Udacity ( http://www.udacity.com/ ), una universidad on-line, que igual que en el caso anterior ofrece cursos masivos y abiertos, gestionados por robots.

 

De estos proyectos y de los desarrollos de Google en el campo educativo nos hablará Peter Norvig el próximo día 23 de marzo, a las 18.00 horas (ver tabla de conversión horaria  http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20120323T18&amp;amp;p1=31 ), desde de la plataforma Blackboard Collaborate de la Universitat de València, en una conferencia abierta y accesible a todos desde este link

Trataremos de emitirlo en directo con traducción simultanea al español.

Sin duda, es una cita ineludible, una ocasión única para aprender de alguien que ha demostrado sobradamente su talento y su expertise en un campo emergente que nos conduce a un cambio de paradigma.

Top 10 Tongue Twisters: True Teacher's Treasure?

Top 10 Tongue Twisters: True Teacher's Treasure? | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
Tongue twisters in the ESL classroom – yes or no?Although most don't make any sense at all, they can certainly help your students improve their pronunciation skills.

 

Betty Botter
Betty Botter had some butter, “But,” she said, “this butter's bitter. If I bake this bitter butter, it would make my batter bitter. But a bit of better butter – that would make my batter better.”
So she bought a bit of butter, better than her bitter butter, and she baked it in her batter, and the batter was not bitter. So 'twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter.
