This is a great opportunity to see what can be done in a Virtual World and it’s free. You just need to download Second Life.
Cynthia Calongne and friends gave us a peek at the Faire and the events during a livestream last week. Recording Link https://youtu.be/rIklmTRbyb4

For the monthly Ethics & Games webinar from the ISTE Games & Sims Network, Sherry Jones @autnes led us through the Vanishing of Ethan Carter. The game won the Best Game Innovation Award at 2015 British Academy Games Award (BAFTA).
The visuals in the game are beautiful, the plot twist is mind-blowing and Sherry as a philosophy instructor is able to bring in Spinoza’s Ethics.

The Ready Player One book club has been building in Second Life!
Our Book Club does have its own area (exhibition) in this virtual world. If you are logged into Second Life, you can get to us directly by going to https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/VWBPE%20South1/28/36/35
On the map, we’re exhibit 31 but the sign on our area is 301.

We are using a subreddit for Ready Player One!
Go ahead and post your main, alts and any avatars you want.
The discussion questions are happening on the subreddit https://www.reddit.com/r/Oasis4Edu/. Reddit might be new to you or new as education platform. We thought would be closer to the gunter forums than using the Metagame Google Plus community.
#OASIS4Edu - Can thank Dr. Cynthia Calongne for that! We don’t think it will last forever but we can have fun with it over the next few weeks.
