VWBPE 2024: Mythic Origins

The VWBPE 2024 conference theme is Mythic Origins. Are you ready to embark on an extraordinary journey in education and virtual environments? Join us as we delve into the theme of mythic origins, where we explore the creation of immersive and transformative educational experiences through visual storytelling and interactivity.

At this conference, we will share our research and insights into the dynamic landscape of education, especially in the context of virtual and hybrid learning practices. Together we’ll explore big ideas in education including:

  • How we can enhance our educational approaches
  • Mythic origin stories pioneering innovative practices that can inspire others
  • Changing perceptions and behaviors of students towards lifelong learning
  • Understanding the benefits and challenges of artificial intelligence in teaching and learning

Educators, innovators, and enthusiasts from all corners of the globe are invited to come together at this groundbreaking event. We understand that education is a collaborative endeavor, and we believe in the power of synergy. Whether you’re an educator, an educational technologist, a web developer, or a passionate advocate for immersive learning, you are welcome to be part of our community.

Join us at VWBPE 2024 as we explore our Mythic Origins, together.

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

Immersive Experiences proposal submissions are due 11 February 2024.

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.

Video Engagement

Would you like to showcase your Immersive Experience through video (machinima)?
We welcome you to consider providing a short video that can be used to promote your Immersive Experience.

Please indicate your interest by checking the video engagement option on the submission form.
Additional information will be provided upon acceptance.

Immersive Experiences applications are now CLOSED. Thank you!
