2022 #VWEDU: Educators, learners, and librarians in the metaverse: How to find others with similar interests. Virtual worlds education consortium (VWEC).


Educators, learners, and librarians  in the metaverse:  
How to find others with similar interests.  
Virtual worlds education consortium (VWEC).  
We educators figured out how to find each other in the metaverse. And you can find us that way, too.

Purpose

  • The purpose of the SL Educational SIM Move is to bring educational communities together in a main grid with goals that include:
  • Creating welcoming educational spaces that newcomers can easily find, that promote interaction among residents, and that provide safe, fun, attractive and easy links to the larger educational community.
  • Providing educators already active in SL with a safe networking and teaching environment that addresses the concerns of their institutions’ administrators.
  • Affording a gateway experience that can be used to encourage groups and institutions not already in SL to perceive the educational value of social virtual worlds.
  • Advancing collaborative educational opportunities.
  • Documenting and archiving best practices of learning in virtual environments.
  • Advocating the educational potential for Second Life to new learners and educators.
  • Supporting diversity and inclusion.
  • Educators who do not choose to move to the new Edulands grid will still be featured by VWEC, included in the directory and may have a portal for easy location.
