olliegardener q1) interactive environments simulating real life or scenarios that   can help us think or practice a skill    #chat2lrn  15:07:10
DPGplc a virtual world is a simulated environment and chance to connect with   others across the globe ?? #chat2lrn  15:07:21
tomspiglanin Q1) I guess there are two types of v-worlds; immersive life-like and   avatar-based. Two different experiences #chat2lrn  15:07:43
jtech4learning Do we all agree that virtual learning is a great concept, with a ready   made audience, that needs development? #chat2lrn  15:07:50
lauraoverton Q1 a virtual world for me is online space where I can get immersed in   or play an active role a situation #chat2lrn #chat2lrn  15:08:19
tracylhwright Q1) increase transfer by making training more representative of real   world work. ? #chat2lrn  15:08:22
DPGplc or in the next street 🙂
#chat2lrn
 15:08:39
lesleywprice q1) Agree with Tom….some real life simulation like pilots other   avatar based #chat2lrn  15:08:41
alc47 Q1 Virtual place to learn and practice in risk free way #Chat2lrn  15:08:42

#chat2lrn
 15:09:45
tomspiglanin Q1) immersive worlds, authentic at-risk opportunities and understand   human reaction to stressful situations with “relative” safety   #chat2lrn  15:10:01
pattishank @tomspiglanin what’s the dif? #chat2lrn  15:10:03
pattishank RT @lauraoverton: RT @alc47: Q1 Virtual place to learn and practice in   risk free way<play it safe and learn it safe! #chat2lrn  15:10:17

#chat2lrn
 15:10:41
pattishank RT @alc47: Q1 Virtual place to learn and practice in risk free way   #chat2lrn  15:10:45
veecam @bachananand a virtual world with the sole purpose of developing   skills and competencies associated with learning #chat2lrn  15:11:00
JudithELS RT @pattishank: q1) simulate reality with no fear <That’s a   v.important point IMHO #chat2lrn  15:11:24
tomspiglanin @pattishank the difference is the experience; avatars gather,   collaborate; immersive is a life-like experience, personal growth #chat2lrn  15:11:30
KristiBroom Or ipad? Sims games? RT @lesleywprice: q1) Does playing on a Wii count   as a virtual world?   #Chat2lrn  15:11:37
olliegardener @lesleywprice why wouldnt it? I’ve played tennis on Wii w my brother   in Norway. Enough practice. Will take revenge in real life! #chat2lrn  15:11:39
pattishank RT @DPGplc: I like the risk free and play it safe angle :0)<me too   #chat2lrn  15:11:46

JudithELS RT @lesleywprice: q1) Does playing on a Wii count as a virtual world? <I   don’t see why not. #chat2lrn  15:12:11
lauraoverton q1) – provide an interim step before trying it out in the big wide   world! #chat2lrn
#chat2lrn
 15:12:20
tomspiglanin some risk in immersive; my heart jumped even tho simulation MT   @pattishank @alc47 Q1 place to learn and practice in risk free way #chat2lrn  15:12:52
pattishank @tomspiglanin so avatar isn’t immersive? #chat2lrn  15:13:04
DPGplc but not all virtual environments are about simulation – what about   collaboration / communication?
#chat2lrn
 15:13:11
chat2lrn Q2) What experiential learning have you experienced (learner or   facilitator)? #chat2lrn  15:13:30
burrough RT @DPGplc: but not all virtual environments are about simulation –   what about collaboration / communication? and discovery #chat2lrn  15:13:58
lesleywprice @lauraoverton – MoD use it a lot for that!  Can’t really make mistakes on £m sub or   ship! #chat2lrn  15:14:02
anchalmanocha Q1. Virtual worlds like Second Life may distract learning because of   the many unnecessary elements involved. #chat2lrn  15:14:04
pattishank @tomspiglanin makes sense (I realized that after I typed it)… same   cognitive/emotional reaction? #chat2lrn  15:14:13
lesleywprice RT @chat2lrn: Q2) What experiential learning have you experienced   (learner or facilitator)? #chat2lrn  15:14:20
veecam Q1: offer the potential for authentic experiences that support changes   in behaviour @alc47 #chat2lrn  15:14:26
lauraoverton Q2 – is this a qu about online or in the real world? #chat2lrn
#chat2lrn
 15:14:36
olliegardener q1) does the “virtual” bit = computer generated.. or does   (immersive) board games, role playing games etc count too? #chat2lrn  15:14:36
DPGplc My strategic thinking has improved because of PS3 games, hand eye   co-ordination has developed from Wii #games    #chat2lrn  15:14:50
olliegardener RT @chat2lrn: Q2) What experiential learning have you experienced   (learner or facilitator)? #chat2lrn  15:14:52
pattishank @pattishank @tomspiglanin in fact, isn’t that the purpose? #chat2lrn  15:15:04
lesleywprice q2) have done an online course where part of it was spent in virtual   world, have played on Wii have been in flight simulator #chat2lrn  15:15:10
pattishank RT @veecam: Q1: offer the potential for authentic experiences that   support changes in behaviour @alc47 #chat2lrn  15:15:17
alc47 Q2. A virtual environment where I had an avatar and was part of a   lecture audience #Chat2lrn  15:15:28
tomspiglanin @pattishank I don’t see it that way – avatar can look 3rd person at   self; immersive is all 1st-person, life-like experience #chat2lrn  15:15:37
JudithELS Q2) How would fellow tweeps define ‘experiential’? #chat2lrn  15:16:08
tomspiglanin RT @chat2lrn: Q2) What experiential learning have you experienced   (learner or facilitator)? #chat2lrn  15:16:09
DPGplc I’ve also seen first hand my son developing team building / work   skills playing online games   #chat2lrn  15:16:16
jtech4learning Within the professional context; a v environment should be a safe   place for people collaboration and learning #chat2lrn#chat2lrn  15:16:36
pattishank @tomspiglanin REALLY interesting. #chat2lrn  15:16:52
KristiBroom Q2) I chaperoned my daughter’s week-long experiential environmental   education. In nature, learning about nature. #Chat2lrn  15:16:54
LnDDave #chat2lrn greetings all.  Just   popping in for a bit between meetings. I hope all are well.  15:16:59
veecam @chat2lrn Q2. Both experiences and both were immersive in different   ways #chat2lrn  15:17:03
olliegardener q2) My strategic HR course at uni was a computer game – we led virtual   companies and got challenges each week we had to act on.  #chat2lrn  15:17:06
lauraoverton q2 – taking part in a meeting as an avatar provided me with great   experiential learning about virtual worlds themselves! #chat2lrn #chat2lrn  15:17:14
alc47 @lauraoverton Could be both – a business game for example played by   teams in a Conf room #Chat2lrn  15:17:35
tomspiglanin Q2) my experience, avatar-based; I led class of 15, created 4 groups,   each collaborated then presented to others. All loved it #chat2lrn  15:17:39
bachananand @DPGplc that is so cool , kids developing skills online , hope it can   be used offline #chat2lrn  15:17:50

alc47 @LnDDave Hi Dave – great to have you here even if only for a short   while #Chat2lrn  15:18:26
DPGplc @lauraoverton – totally agree – just ‘walking about’ in a simulated   environment is a learning experience in itself  #chat2lrn  15:18:30
tomspiglanin @LnDDave Excellent topic, “What is social learning” on   #lrnchat  #chat2lrn  15:18:30
pattishank @LnDDave Nice to see you! #chat2lrn  15:19:06
tomspiglanin Q2) As “instructor” it was interesting to see participants   playing with their avatars – floating, sitting; added element of fun   #chat2lrn  15:19:21
elearningguy I’m here lurking a bit while I review some procedural documents   #chat2lrn  15:19:34

alc47 Q2 Is a webinar a virtual world – for me it takes me away from my   usual ways of doing things – so becomes something different #Chat2lrn  15:22:23
lauraoverton Q2 – most common experiential learning 4 me is role play & working   through scenarios – not online but really useful !#chat2lrn #chat2lrn  15:22:29
DPGplc @burrough thanks Sam, here to revolutionise #cipd or at least provide   more options / methods in which ppl can learn 😉   #chat2lrn  15:22:32
