Escaping Flatland:Learning via the First-Person Interface

A while back Karl Kapp and I were asked by Steve Wexler of the e-Learing Guild to put or Fast-Forward hats on and describe what it will be like when Synchronous Learning meets 3D Avatar Mediated Interaction.

The result was a very long paper that was included in the Guild’s Report on Synchronous Learning that can be found here.

For those of you who attended the e-Learn conference and heard my keynote last week, you may want to check out this really cool video that Karl put together. It does a great job of getting across the key points we were trying to make.Thanks Karl!

Finally I enclose a copy of the chart that many folks asked for that attempts to summarize the emergent 3D Learning Archetype landscape that Karl and I envision as the relentless pace of technology marches on to infinity and beyond as Buzz Lightyear likes to say.

Looks like we are marching down that maturity curve already. Digital Avatars, in Digital Classrooms looking at Digital Presentations is so yesterday at this point ; ) Lets keep the progression going.
