LoW4 - The Expanding Universe: The Virtual World of LES

Rob Sanders and Stephen Bronack at Appalachian State University are talking about teaching and learning in a virtual environment, where the tools are not in focus, but rather their application and the interaction they facilitate. Objectives: collaborative environment, products of learning that matter, increased proficiency in program areas. Goals: learning outcomes, community of practice. Emerging Learning Strategies: Action Learning (Lindy McKeown, who will be presenting tomorrow). They show examples from Active Worlds. Dick Riedl says that learning takes place in our heads.
