Virtual Worlds 5th annual Best Practices in Education 2012 is right around the corner, March 15-17th. The theme this year is to "Be Epic"! Attendance is free and more information can be found on the official web site here: http://www.vwbpe.org/ or direct link here: VWBPEWebHere.
Their site states, "This three day conference provides opportunities for sharing and further understanding of virtual world technology. Whether your epic adventures take you to Second Life, OpenSim, World of Warcraft, Minecraft or Club Penguin – this is your community event." The confrence brings together leaders in the field of virtual immersive education sharing resources. I attended several sessions during last year's conference and had a fun educational time and am sure there will be more of the same and new this year. There were over 2400 attendees last year reprsenting 95 countries.
