As this is the closing day of our Serious Games/Virtual Worlds event, I would like to thank everyone who participated and everyone who contributed to making this a truly wonderful experience for me and Therese.
We both feel that we have learnt a good deal we didn't know before and met some wonderful new people through the experience.
Certainly, going to Reuters, London, as the guest of Ron Edwards, was a direct bonus from hosting this event and I have to report that it was a fantastic experience. A room filled with earnestly interested top drawer executives, all seeking the solution to a next generation educational environment or deliverable.
In particular, I want to give a shout to www.Guintilabs.com, www.learningguide.co.uk and www.datmedia.co.uk, all of whom have products that will revolutionise online learning. Guintilabs have a click and drag 3d environment creation capability and I encourage those who are interested in using Virtual World environments for a younger audience to check it out. Members of this forum may also be interested in www.movinglearning.com which is happening in both the UK and Holland during June and I will also be attending that event.
Clearly, from what I heard and learnt fron the Reuters event hosted by Ron was that everyone is seriously interested in new technologies as teaching tools which of course means that it begins in the classroom.
Does anyone have any closing thoughts about how they would want to go forward around this topic?
I would also invite anyone who wants to continue the conversation, to join us at www.amodus.org.uk where we have a Serious Games group.
Much thanks also to Sylvia for inviting us to host and we hope everyone who joined us has found something beneficial to take away.
