Graduates of the UW Certificate in Virtual Worlds Program continue to collaborate long after graduation. Isn’t this a great example of constructivist learning in global digital participatory culture? No matter your age bracket, we are all digital citizens connected through constantly evolving digital formats.
Several UW Avalumni colleagues met with Suzette (Class of 2012 and PhD Candidate) to experience the difference between an immersive virtual reality headset and a “traditional” virtual world like Second Life. Valibrarian shares her experience from the perspective of an information literacy specialist. An advantage of constructivist learning is the inclusion of all of our perspectives and talents merged together to move us forward in the rapidly changing information landscape. Plus- this is fun!
