The Theme for VWBPE 2024 is Mythic Origins

Myths, from the epic tales of gods and heroes to the creation stories of diverse cultures, have always carried powerful narratives that captivate and inspire. They connect us to our roots, explain our existence, and provide meaning to our lives.

Virtual environments, such as immersive simulations and online communities, offer a canvas where mythic origins can flourish reshaping the way we approach learning and digital spaces.

These digital realms allow learners to step into the shoes of mythic heroes, creating their own stories and identities. From virtual archaeology excavations to global collaborations, students are shaping their educational journeys in unprecedented ways, embodying the archetypal hero’s path.

Virtual environments allow students and educators to tap into our innate human desire for meaning, adventure, and transformation. They become places of epic growth and self-discovery, attracting learners seeking more than just information – they seek a mythic journey.

Students are no longer passive learners. They are explorers facing challenges, acquiring knowledge, and emerging as empowered individuals imbued with a sense of purpose and destiny.

Similarly, educators act as mentors, guiding and empowering learners on their way through these vast quests and landscapes. Guides to the temples of knowledge that await, facilitating the hero’s journey with resources and riches.
