Panayiotis Zaphiris :: Blog :: ESRC Festival of Social Science: Social Learning in Virtual Worlds

March 06, 2008

As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, the Centre for HCI
Design at City University London is organising a virtual seminar on
the topic of "Social Learning in Virtual Worlds" in Second Life!

Virtual Worlds (such as Second Life) are increasingly becoming a
medium through which young people socialise, work and learn.  A
community of researchers and educators are utilising these spaces for
their delivery of teaching and for conducting research.

 The seminar will explore and discuss the potential of the use of
virtual worlds for social teaching and learning.

 Date: 13 March 2008 (Thursday)

 Start at: 7:30am (SL time) / 3:30pm (UK time)

 Duration: 1 hour

 location: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Emerge/193/59/39

i.e. at the EMERGE Island :-)  

see you in SecondLife!
