Representatives from the Field Museum’s Whyreef project and Lives at War, a virtual project that teach students about life during World War II will talk about their work. You can log in here.
Here’s more information:
Beth Sanzenbacher, Outreach Coordinator for the Biodiversity Synthesis Group at the Field Museum and contributing author on the WhyReef Knowing & Doing article in IJLM V 3.1 will share what her team has learned about how scientific accuracy in game design fosters scientific inquiry in learners.
Dom Raban, Managing Director, Corporation Pop, Virtual Worlds developer, and Juliette Buss, Education & Participation Consultant and Project Manager, will discuss the Lives at War Virtual World project.
Year 10 students from Longhill High School in Brighton worked with older Brighton residents to collect and create stories based on personal experiences of life in Brighton and Sussex during World War 2. Virtual Worlds designer Dom Raban, in collaboration with Juliette Buss, used these oral histories to create the interactive virtual world Lives At War.
The discussion will be moderated by Claudia L’Amoreaux, curator at Connected PD and Ruth Rominger, director of learning design at the Monterey Institute of Technology and Education.
