Second Life: Breaking the Classroom Metaphor
NW eLearn Conference (2009)
  • Chris Haskell, Boise State University

As we develop instructional systems using Second Life and other virtual worlds, learners find droning lectures, stale slide presentations, and instructional methodologies that are 10 years behind the current thinking. This session will discuss and demonstrate learning by doing in proxy-based learning environments using constructivist and social learning theory approaches to teaching in Second Life and other virtual environments. Participants should bring laptops with Second Life to participate in demonstrations.
