In February, the students of 3D World took a field trip to the Brooklyn Public Library Grand Army Plaza branch (aka Central branch) to learn what librarians do in real life and to explore the amazing space.
In January, the students of 3D World took a field trip to Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn to see what 3D World’s very own Globo Gym would look like in real life.
Our 3D world mid-year refresher was great and it was a lovely to have our 3D world community together IRL at District Office. See this link for the slide deck we used on that day. We were able to talk about best practices and plan out lessons for our adventures in 3D world for the rest of the year! Check out our selfies from real life and in-world! Can you guess who is who?
3D World is an immersive educational game environment where you’ll collaborate, explore, and learn through interactive virtual lessons. This year you’ll develop real-world skills like critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving.
To kick things off, Lesson 1 will focus on:
- Learning 3D World controls and navigation
- Choosing your own avatar
- Practicing communication skills
Lesson 1 begins on October 23rd and runs for two weeks until November 3rd. This extended time will allow everyone to get fully set up before diving into more advanced concepts. Click on the Weekly Activities link in the menu above to see more.
Take 1-2 periods per week to review the lesson objectives and materials IRL (In Real Life). Understanding the goals beforehand is key to success in the virtual classroom.
Please reach out to Charles Gerber, Charles Bender, and/or Cara Coffina to let us know when your classes plan to be “in-world”. We want to make sure you feel comfortable in the 3D World platform. Remember, the (3D) World is yours!
