Nature in Virtual Worlds Update
A busy couple of months. I joined a panel on "Science in Virtual Worlds" at the Association of Internet Researchers Conference in Copenhagen, October 16, where I talked about my research on sites for environmental education in Second Life.
A week later, I delivered a paper on "Representations of 'Nature' in SL" at the Reading and Writing Virtual Worlds conference at the National Institute for Excellence in the Creative Industries, University of Bangor, Wales.
Last Thursday, I delivered a short version of that paper as part of the "Virtual FSU: Learning and Research in Second Life" mini-conference I coordinated at Florida State. (Many thanks to Ken Lim for the plug!)
And this Thursday I am off to San Diego to stage a poster-session version of the enviro-ed material at the National Communication Association convention.
