VWBPE 2022: PHOENIX RISING

Immersive Experience Proposal Submission

PHOENIX RISING Introduction

Around the globe (and across the metaverse) the phoenix is a symbol of hope and renewal, ushering in an era of prosperity and transformation.

Like the newly born phoenix arising from the ashes of its previous life, virtual education is also experiencing an uprising of abundance and transformation. Whether it be fully immersive or simple video conferencing, the practical application of tools and techniques over the past two years represents a wealth of inspiration for connecting teachers and students in ways that are comprehensive, progressive, and meaningful.

The past two years also provide a real time, global case study as to the merits and limitations of virtual education: What works, what doesn’t, why or why not. There is a plethora of real-world evidence supporting the practical application and best practices of teaching virtually that we have never truly had access to until now.

The world is forever a changed place for those on the front lines of education, asking how the next generation of students are going to perceive and integrate a post-covid society into opportunities for growth, for renewal, and a redefinition of the values that once drove us.

Join us and share your reawakening into a world like no other. VWBPE 2022 is asking educators to consider their transformative journey as we sweep away the ashes of the past two years and venture out into the unknown. Join us and share your research and insights as we arise in this new landscape of virtual education.

All subject areas and virtual environments that support teaching and learning are welcome.

Immersive Experiences

The Immersive Experiences category showcases virtual locations whose main objective is interaction, immersion, and engagement for those who enter them, whether to play a game, solve an immersive problem, or engage participants in hands-on, interactive learning.

Immersive Experiences submissions require a guide to provide basic instruction on the interface of the platform. Time should be spent mainly on having the participants play, immerse, or engage with the location, not just “touring” it. Accessibility must be considered to allow participation for all.

Submissions to the Immersive Experiences category are VWBPE committee reviewed and require already existing and ready for use locations or platforms. Because of the length of time required for these experiences, these will be hosted pre- and post-conference. If a proposal is selected for inclusion, it will be scheduled in the two weeks before or after the conference, depending on availability and timing.
