Lots of little things to learn in virtual worlds

  • How to fly
  • How to talk 
  • How to sit
  • How to look around
  • That's about all you need to go to a meeting.  
  • You can pick up the other things later.
  • We meet and talk
  • Yes, I mean talk.
  • Just like real people do.
  • Of course we are real people.
  • Those avatars are just there to represent us.

A few big things to learn in virtual worlds

  • Mistakes are good if you learn from them.
  • Oh, sure, mistakes in the "real" world can do lot of damage.
  • Mistakes in virtual worlds just teach you the value of backups.
Arrive at new place

Arriving at the role-play court
  • You could rez places fitting specific role-play themes 
  • People take a position in the box that fits their view.
  • They discuss that view with others in that box.
  • And with people in adjacent boxes. 
Thinking map
  • I would put it on the floor, big enough for avatars to walk on it.
