What is “Community Day?”

Community Day is the day (typically Thursday) when all the classes in all the schools officially log into 3D World. And while classes and students can log into the world any day of the week at any time of the day, community days are opportunities for students to communicate and interact with others — which is a crucial component of the program.

On community days students:

  • meet peers from other schools;
  • speak with other students;
  • speak with teachers;
  • chat with students;
  • make friends; and
  • engage with the adult facilitators (who assume the roles of bankers, shop keepers, waiters, ice skating instructors, and so on).

When students log into 3D World on other than community days, they are able to explore and interact with the world (e.g., ride a bicycle, arrange furniture in apartments). However, the cross-school communication will be missing.

Nov 12 First Week for Students… Here We Go!

Greetings! Our first drop-in session of the year will be this Thursday, Nov 5 from 10-12. All new and returning teachers are invited to stop by to test out new avatars and new (or old) equipment.

Beginning on the 12th, Community times will be as follows:

Thursdays from 10-12pm

See you in-world!

Info Sessions!

Please join us this week for 3D World Info Sessions (for staff). You can check the session times and register here. We can’t wait to welcome our new avatars to 3D World. We will be getting started in mid October to give everyone time to get settled into their new and very unusual school year, and to make sure that every participating student has a computer to use. Please be in touch with Cara or Charles with any questions. “See” you soon!
