2015 EDU: Calendars of some educator events in virtual worlds, formatted for posting on a prim

Calendar of some educator events in virtual worlds, 
formatted for posting on a prim
Updated 1/12/2015Scroll down for News and notes (including articles about new TOS)

This calendar is maintained by ISTE-SIGVE

This calendar contains events from multiple educator groups using virtual and gaming environments for teaching and learning.  If you want a group to be added, contact  ISTE-SIGVE.  If you know of another Google calendar that carries a lot of events related to education, give me a link to it in the comments section below.  I may combine the calendars or publish a second calendar.


All times are Pacific Time (California).  
If there are other calendars of interest  to the educational communities of virtual worlds, add them in the comments on this blog post and I will  look for a way to integrate them.

Events in the virtual worlds  


      Contests and dated calls/invitations

      The Journal of Virtual Studies currently has a call for papers open.  The journal is peer reviewed and focuses on the use of virtual spaces for knowledge immersion.  Do you work or research in Second Life,  OpenSim or any other virtual platform?  Have you been engaged in research, exploration or reflection when using MMPORG’s?  Have you discovered a virtual space with knowledge immersion possibilities or have you engaged in a fascinating new way to explore the virtual through any number of immersive online applications?    
      These and many other questions are explored by the JoVS.  The Fall 2014 issue is expected to publish in September.  For details, see here: Journal of Virtual Studies 
      The theme is 'TRANSCENDING BORDERS.' Artists & filmmakers can interpret the theme as they see fit. Whether transcending borders between time and space, past and present, one nation and another, one language and another, a culture or civilisation or any other of the innumerable borders that present themselves as we navigate our lives. You the artist... You the machinimatogrpher...You decide.
