A Serious Second Life for B-Schools—Conducting Business in a Virtual World

A Serious Second Life for B-Schools—Conducting Business in a Virtual World | The 21st Century | Scoop.it

"If Avaya has its way, business students will be replaced by avatars in a virtual world. Don’t laugh: It already happened at MIT Sloan. The company’s platform, Avaya Live Engage, is not about creating a virtual reality to live and play in; it’s about conducting business and educating people in a way that allows users to communicate as though they were attending a physical event."

Lola Jennings- Edquist's curator insight, August 12, 2013 12:52 AM

A very cool link, something that could come in useful for teaching kids science- especially those unenthused about the subject. 

 

Could also lead to lessons or discussions in upper and middle primary classrooms in the way lessons have shifted over time as technology changes and advances- definite links to economics, here.

Higher education in virtual worlds: the use of Second Life and OpenSim for educational practices - University of Bedfordshire Repository

Higher education in virtual worlds: the use of Second Life and OpenSim for educational practices - University of Bedfordshire Repository | The 21st Century | Scoop.it

"This thesis explores the features of Second Life and OpenSim that affect the choice of academics who are planning to use a virtual world in order to meet the learning needs of their students. For the conduct of this study, what was taken into account is a preexisting framework which proposes the evaluation of virtual worlds against four dimensions: their contexts, the immersion encountered within each, their cost, and their persistence.

Piet Kommers's curator insight, April 6, 2013 2:28 PM

Realism and spatially-correct environments elicit new ambitions for learning. Virtuality and immersiveness however is not a pandora for the essential problems like motivation, concentration and abstraction. Let's build upon the  success of gaming and check if a more playing attitude by the learner leads to certain benefits for longer term learning.

Olli Hatakka's curator insight, April 7, 2013 11:55 PM

I just had to rescoop this article from Piet's Scoops. This is a nice collection of ideas (and actual developments) in using the possibility of virtual worlds in education.
