VWER: 7 Feb at 12 noon US Pacific time, 8pm UK time: Decision-making game in Second Life

Sheila Webber
*** Moving a Decision-Making Game from the classroom to Second Life.

On Thurs 7 Feb 2019, in Second Life (SL), at 12 noon SL time (e.g. 8pm UK time, 3pm US EST) the Virtual Worlds Education Roundtable (VWER) weekly event includes a trip to walkthough and discuss a SL implementation of a game. You need to have a SL avatar to participate.

**The session will be led by Scot Jung (Scot Headley outside SL) and hosted by Sheila Yoshikawa (Sheila Webber outside SL)

*** Description
This session introduces Rockville, a role playing game used in ethics education of teachers and other educators. Session participants will learn about the purpose, aims, and flow of the game and then, participate in a walk through the game environment in Second Life. One purpose of the session is to provide feedback to the game creator and to suggest improvements and modifications.

*** Format
1. The session will start at the usual VWER gathering place; for introductions, and to share the project background and purpose.

2. Then we will go to Rockville

Scot will help us get the lay of the land and then enter into discussion about how to accomplish the goals of the game: through technical means, through strategies and tactics.

Scot Jung (Scot Headley irl) is a professor of educational leadership at George Fox University in Oregon USA. His scholarly interests are in the professional development of educators and effective teaching and learning in an online environment
