As the year draws to a close we take the time to reflect: personally and professionally. The solstice draws our thoughts to the sky — and where our Stellar journey takes us next.

At this time of year we also take time for friends and family, renewing relationships as we ponder the wonder of the season. We remember those who may no longer be with us and hold close those who are.

Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education wishes our friends and colleagues around the world and across the metaverse the very best for the holidays. Rest and rejoice — but don’t forget to prepare your proposal for 2020 (presentation, immersive experience, and / or exhibit).

Here’s to the renewal and promise of the new year!
