Presenter: Scott Merrick
Location: Nashville, Tennessee, USA
Presentation Description: Scott Merrick has been exploring virtual worlds, a.k.a. 3D online environments, for years and has focused for the past half decade on their potentials for extending learning and teaching onto the global stage. He has been known to mashup technologies in order to get a point, or points, across. This session utilizes a live exploration of a custom-built Wallwisher.com webpage with voice narration created in Audacity. Learn a little bit about several more or less randomly selected (from hundreds existing) examples of the power of virtual environments to help establish “sense of place at a distance.” Then visit the wall itself in order to fully explore resources which a 20 minute recorded session can only overview.
