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. Staff will be on hand to help with any issues. The first day for students will be Thursday, Nov 12 with our first official Community Session of the year. 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!

New Community Time

Greetings, Avatars. Community Time will now be from 10-12 on Thursdays, a slightly later start than in the past, since we are now joining from home. Please be in touch with any question or for assistance with set-up.

Avatars at Home, Community Day Continues

Calling all avatars! We hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy at home while schools are closed. During this time, 3D World is open and community day continues with a shortened 2 hour session on Thursdays from 10-12 (*new start time). Big shout out to the Thunderfrogs, Dragondogs and Puppycats, some of whom have logged in to work and complete their 3D lessons from home!

We’ve created two videos to help families get connected from home. Remember that 3D World does not work on mobile devices such iPad, phone, chromebook or tablet. You need a computer (laptop or desktop) and these instructions for downloading and installing the Firestorm Viewer. You will also need your avatar login information from your teacher. Please see the videos below and email Cara or Charles if you need help.
