Are You Asking the Right Questions in the Midst of Change?

As educators, we worry that technology integration is outpacing our teaching. Asking the right questions may help us prioritize how we choose the tools and implement them in meaningful and powerful ways.

Inside Avatar Studio: Redux
May 12, 4:00 PM PST / 7:00 PM EST
http://ruc.today/2017/04/28/ias-alice-krueger/

In Conversation with Alice Krueger (Gentle Heron): Found in Translation

Inside The Avatar’s Studio brings together innovative leaders from the virtual technology frontier to discuss perceptions, perspectives, and predictions of what ‘being virtual’ means in today’s society.

Host Kevin Feenan and guest Alice Krueger will discuss current issues and trends surrounding the implications virtual experiences have for people with disabilities and the affordances that virtual reality opens new opportunities to redefine the question: “What is normal, anyway?”
Ms. Krueger is President of the nonprofit Virtual Ability, Inc., and the founder of the Virtual Ability community. As a woman with Multiple Sclerosis, she found it increasingly difficult to participate in her real life community as her disability progressed. No longer able to leave home to work, volunteer, or socialize with friends, she turned to virtual worlds to fulfill these basic human needs.

There will be a simultaneous live transcription.

Afterwards, at 5:00 PM, we will be moving to the George C. Dove Theatre for some dancing! http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Rockcliffe%20I/178/97/23
