Best of Worlds
About integration of open technologies like Web 2.0, Serious Gaming & Virtual Worlds to make education better. The last 3 months we did projects with Utrecht University, Kennisnet and internally to see how education experiences can be improved and extended.
Project 1 - Masterprogram "rules of Play", about learning leadership in MMORPGs, like World of Warcraft and EVE Online. Results were presented and discussed (also live in Second Life to follow) at Symposium in De Balie, Amsterdam, June 24th.
Project 2 - IBM zomercursus Onderwijs 2.0. August 5-7th, received a lot of press coverage. For a selected audience of teachers and IT coordinators in "Voortgezet Onderwijs", topics about Web 2.0, Serious Gaming & Virtual Worlds were discussed.
Project 3 - Internal project @ IBM. Over 100 learning professionals within IBM Europe are teached over distance about Web 2.0/Serious Gaming & Virtual Worlds.
