Workshop: Avatars on the Edges of Space: An Immersion Model @ VWBPE Workshop Area B
Mar 27 @ 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Workshop: Avatars on the Edges of Space: An Immersion Model @ VWBPE Workshop Area B

Speaker: Leticia Deleon / Letty Luckstone, University of Texas Rio Grande Valley

While virtual environments have been explored, discovered, and conquered, true immersion for learning continues to be elusive. This workshop will engage participants in an immersive model that borrows from experiential learning through the marriage of avatar, environment, and actions. Not only will participants engage in an immersive, interactive experience by using multimodal tools, but also create a plan for using the model with their own learners.

  • The participant will immerse their avatar in a learning experience using multimodal tools.
  • The participant will design their own plan for engaging their learners in true immersive learning.
