Virtual worlds, real learning? - update

Some of you may have noticed that we have now formally announced this year's Eduserv Foundation symposium.  A programme for the day is now available (though it should be noted that the titles of talks are indicative rather than actual).  As I said in my last post, I think we have a very exciting line-up of speakers including Jim Purbrick from Linden Lab, Roo Reynolds from IBM, Hamish MacLeod from Edinburgh University, Joanna Scott from Nature Publishing Group, Gilly Salmon from the University of Leicester and Stephen Downes from the National Research Council Canada.

The day will end with a panel session that includes all the speakers and Sara de Freitas from the London Knowledge Lab (who recently authored the Learning in Immersive Worlds study for the JISC).

There is already a lot of interest in attending this event.  If you want to come but haven't yet signed up, then I suggest that you do so soon.
