Boldly Go – Celebrate Success & Cataclysm Stories @ VWBPE Lecture Area B
Mar 28 @ 10:00 AM – 10:50 AM

Speaker: Renne Emiko Brock / Zinnia Zauber. Peninsula College,

Confidence comes from educational attempts that fail with room to reflect and regroup to triumph. The constellations don’t move us. The stories behind the stars do. Teach the mythology and methodology of heroes and creatures to embrace worthy motives and mistakes. Assemble learning systems that build worlds and character, foster spheres of influence, and rejoice in honest reflective writing. Celebrate individual’s stories that highlight self-actualization results for all to become shining stars.

  • Teach transformative fable digital storytelling to turn frustration into creative opportunities.
  • Assemble a virtual myth makerspace to build confidence, celebrate challenges, and learn to shine.

Reflection of the need for a moral and ethical reality constituted from three-dimensional immersive digital environments (3D-IDEs) @ VWBPE Lecture Area B
Mar 28 @ 03:00 PM – 03:50 PM

Speaker: Christian Jonathan Angel Rueda / ecoonis, Universidad Autonoma de Querataro

During the development of initial digital technologies, the user was an observer entity that, since it was not involved in the mixing of the real with the virtual, did not feel the direct and instantaneous affectation of the use of said technology itself. Currently, with the new 3D-IDEs technologies, immersion is total, which generates a new problem both with their identity and with their perception of mixed realities, which can affect their moral perception and ethical awareness

  • Participants may reflect on the proposal of a Values Sensitive Design (VSD)
