Recently I was lucky enough to be invited by Roskilde University to a 3-day cross disciplinary research workshop in Denmark entitled ‘Making Sense of Virtual Worlds and User Driven Innovation”. You can access the slides for my talk on problem-based learning and innovation in virtual worlds here.
On the final day I was thrilled to be in the real life audience for a Metanomics Mixed Reality Broadcast special where host Robert Bloomfield led a Second Life panel including Robin Teigland and Edward Castronova at the event and Tom Boellstorff in Second LIfe as they discussed the purchase of virtual islands, leasing of towns, recruiting avatar employees and more.
