2021 #VWEDU: CVL: Collaboration is the secret sauce for educators in social virtual worlds. Community Virtual Library connects collaborators.

Collaboration is the secret sauce 
for educators in social virtual worlds. 
Community Virtual Library connects collaborators.    
Social  virtual worlds are about communities of people working together towards shared goals.  Do not be misled by the tech.  The tech is just a tool to support collaboration.  Here are some examples of the products of collaboration

Libraries in virtual worlds

  • The main function of physical libraries is to provide wide access to cultural content.
  • Originally that meant curating book stacks.
  • The internet can replace book stacks for their main purposes.  
  • It cannot replace curation.
  • Libraries in virtual worlds (Wikipedia)
