Friends of the Library Selfie Portraits Activity @ Community Virtual Library in Kitely
Mar 15 @ 01:00 PM – 02:30 PM
Friends of the Library Selfie Portraits Activity @ Community Virtual Library in Kitely

Join host Bethany Winslow to create a selfie for the Friends of the Library wall at Community Virtual Library location in Kitely! This activity was designed as an Open Educational Resource that allows a new event organizer to provide visitors with an easy building project for a more engaging event. Having content with pre-built instructions and resources to give to your own participants makes it easy for you to replicate this activity. This is especially useful for busy educators who are newer to hosting virtual world events.

Access:

We’ll meet in front of the Hypergrid Resources Library on the Cookie II region of Kitely. You can use an OpenSim hypergrid enabled account or a Kitely account. Here is the CVL hypergrid address – grid.kitely.com:8002:Cookie II (NOTE: Kitely are virtual worlds “on-demand”. You may get a pop up that the teleport has failed and the world is being started. This is normal.)

From the welcome center on Cookie II, use the local teleport to the Hypergrid Resources Library. Here are some short tutorial videos that may help you:

Mindscape @ MindScape
Mar 31 @ 02:00 PM – 03:30 PM
Mindscape @ MindScape

Host: Asmita Duranjaya

“MindScape” is related to brain research and what can refer to the human mind, how to develop, inspire and care for or manipulate it. 15 artists have created either a 2D or a 3D work referring to the topic by adding his or her idea, be it more realistic-physical or more mental or philosophical abstract. The 3D area is a moon landscape, where the 50-prim-installations are presented.

  • Participants will be able to observe the installations and pictures and to interact with them.
  • Participants will be motivated to develop their own idea about what MIND can be and do for them.

Accessibility: Provide a written script during the presentation. Bots provide information on the art installations.
