Bridging Worlds and Connecting Minds on the 3D Web
Take a ride on the wild side as Cynthia Calongne, aka Lyr Lobo, demonstrates the power of open source 3D Web solutions and how they're integrating to characterize the classroom of the future. No passport required! We'll live stream the event in Adobe Connect as we tour learning games, peek behind the scenes at the research, reflect on learning analytics, take a quick look at the architecture, and examine the future of education.
