Virtual Pioneers will visit Isle of Enlightenment on Opensim. Professor Illuminati (aka Spiff) invites you to visit the NY BOCES Sim that highlights two important times in history - the Holocaust and Medieval Times. The first part of the tour will include seeing the replica of Anne Frank’s Annex. If there is time, we will also visit the Heir of the King castle.
Participants in this VP tour will have two options:
#1 Guest accounts will be available for this tour, you can log in and experience the sim first hand. Please download the viewer Imprudence to your computer. The URL and directions how to set up a new grid be available at the meeting that night.
Or fill out the survey HERE to get an educator avatar.
#2 You can come to the Virtual Pioneer building in Second Life and view the tour on Youtube while it is happening via Google Hangout ~ synchronously.
Both options will include opportunity to see and discuss the possibilities of using opensim with students to engage in immersive historical learning opportunities. Hope to see you there.
