The Unitiated, Uninformed and Unwashed: Training Professional to Use Virtual Worlds as a Service Deliver Tool (from scratch)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Educators, Counselors, and other professionals are discovering virtual world environments as a platform to deliver services and content. The challenge for those who help organizations and individuals initiate these valuable activities is to show intelligent people how to use tools that can be very foreign to them (we aren't ALL gamers).

This presentation will be based on actual experiences of training staff members at various human services agencies to adopt and adapt to virtual world usage and will explore the challenges and victories that have occurred in several projects over the last few years.
