This just in — and causing me some consternation. RezEd, the popular social network for educators interested in virtual worlds, is connecting with the Games Learning and Society Conference this year in Madison, Wisconsin. I have attended the GLS conference for the past two years, but decided to take a break from it for 2009. Now, after filling the dates with working gigs, I learn that RezEd is organizing a two-day conference concentrating on virtual worlds.
Are you an educator using virtual worlds for learning? Interested in gaining inspiration for your work, showing off your program, learning practical tips, and connecting with your peers within this emerging field of practice?
If this fits you, or if you have a passing interest in an application that is growing and evolving in learning contexts, then work toward spending a couple of days in a very fine and friendly city.
The conference will run from June 10th – 12th in partnership with the renowned Games, Learning and Society Conference at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. As an official “working group” of GLS, RezEd conference attendees will participate in RezEd-only sessions and gatherings while gaining full access to the always remarkable GLS agenda.
The keynote speaker will be Robin Harper, former VP at Linden Lab. Other speakers will be Peggy Sheehy, Sasha Barab (invited), Lane Lawley, Amira Fouad, Audrey Aranowsky, James Paul Gee, and others to be announced.
