    Imagining The Perfect Virtual Learning Environment


    On July 28th educators, technologists and other professionals came to together to imagine the future of education.  Participants started by outlining parameters.  They asked themselves questions like, “What might be all the different student demographics?” “Through what mediums can education happen?” and “What might be the various durations a session may last?”


    Next participants split up into small teams and choose a set of parameters for which to design their virtual learning environment.  The ideas that came out were phenomenal!  Some decided to teach “know-it-alls” martial arts through an online multi-player gaming platform.  Another group focused on how to assess learning style/preference in an engaging way.  MoshMind (patent pending…) was another design which combined meditation and mobile technologies.  The ideas were highly elaborate and original.


    The education system is facing some challenges and plenty of flack, but judging from the ideas that came out of these collaborations the horizon is bright.
