2018-03-29 – Open Forum

Transcript of the Virtual Worlds Education Roundtable: March 29, 2018

Topic: Open Forum

Note: The local chat from this meeting might look rather strange because the only members attending (besides me [Camie]) were Selby and Marly and they used voice most of the time. Some things mentioned during the meeting might be useful, like the segment where we share information about Creative Commons.


[12:01]  Camie Rembrandt: Don’t expect a lot of people today
[12:02]  Camie Rembrandt: Holidays 🙂
[12:06]  ThinkererSelby Evans (thinkerer.melville): yes
[12:12]  Camie Rembrandt: Hi, Marly! Welcome 🙂
[12:13]  Camie Rembrandt: Sure
[12:14]  Camie Rembrandt: Whatever you like – it’s just the 3 of us
[12:15]  Camie Rembrandt: So what are your current projects?
[12:15]  Camie Rembrandt: With lots of cuts
[12:15]  Camie Rembrandt: the same with Marly
[12:15]  Marly (marly.milena): Camie, can we do this in voice?
[12:15]  Camie Rembrandt: I can hear bits
[12:15]  Marly (marly.milena): Ah, ok
[12:16]  Camie Rembrandt: the problem is that no text, no chat to send to VWER archives 😉
[12:16]  Camie Rembrandt: but that’s okay
[12:16]  ThinkererSelby Evans (thinkerer.melville): 2018 WW: EDU: Visitor’s guide to Cybalounge. Yes, Cybalounge is ready to welcome visitors
Visitor’s guide to Cybalounge.  
Yes, Cybalounge is ready to welcome visitors
For people wanting a preliminary look at virtual worlds, it is easy to come into Cybalounge. You don’t need to register and create a password.  Come in as a guest. Look around. Visit the public rooms. Find people and talk to them.
[12:17]  ThinkererSelby Evans (thinkerer.melville): 2018 WW: Teleports in Cybalounge
Teleports in Cybalounge
You can set the landing point in Cybalounge, but the area is 512 X 512 meters (512 meters = about 1/3 mile). You may have important places scattered all over that area. People want to go fast. For that you need a teleporter prim.
[12:17]  Camie Rembrandt: we’re keeping this casual today
[12:17]  Camie Rembrandt: so go ahead in voice
[12:18]  Marly (marly.milena): Tomorrow, I am doing a program for NPC called LEARNING FROM MISTAKES.  It should be fun, very interactive
[12:18]  Camie Rembrandt: that’s great, yes, Selby
[12:18]  Camie Rembrandt: That sounds great Marly
[12:18]  Marly Milena gave you Marly’s programs.
[12:18]  Camie Rembrandt: Thank you!
[12:19]  Camie Rembrandt: Talk
[12:19]  Camie Rembrandt: yes
[12:19]  Camie Rembrandt: lol
[12:20]  Camie Rembrandt: Videos – sounds interesting
[12:20]  Camie Rembrandt: are they going to be online?
[12:21]  Camie Rembrandt: Very interesting
[12:22]  Camie Rembrandt: Would you like to present at VWER?
[12:22]  Camie Rembrandt: A forest? Nice

[12:23]  Camie Rembrandt: Sounds very interesting
[12:23]  Camie Rembrandt: Is that for LEA?
[12:24]  Camie Rembrandt: No
[12:24]  Camie Rembrandt: Never
[12:25]  Camie Rembrandt: Digital storytelling is very interesting
[12:27]  Camie Rembrandt: You should also give a presentation here at VWER?
[12:28]  Camie Rembrandt: It does sound exciting!
[12:29]  Camie Rembrandt: Making tutorials is a good idea
[12:29]  Camie Rembrandt: You’re both very young! 🙂

[12:33]  Camie Rembrandt: Love that concept
[12:34]  Camie Rembrandt: Right!
[12:34]  Camie Rembrandt: Precisely!
[12:35]  Camie Rembrandt: Yes, probably
[12:36]  Camie Rembrandt: I also believe that storytelling and creative writing is a way to help people develop social awareness and empathy.
[12:37]  Camie Rembrandt: yes
[12:38]  Camie Rembrandt: nice
[12:39]  Camie Rembrandt: Didn’t the Shakespeare Theater Company move to Kitely?
