Wouldn't be fun if you had fun in your online classroom? Oh, yes it would! So, what's stopping you? Fear? Shame? The agony of defeat? Well, we dare you, no we double-dog dare you to stare down the cliff of uncertainty and jump.
In this workshop we will discuss the power of play, and why it can transform teaching and learning. As we have all been pushed online and forced to use more technology than ever, the engagement, motivation and community-building aspects of play have never been more important.
Once we've established that ground, next we will inventory your fears around having fun in your classroom, work through solutions to overcoming those fears and finally develop personal plans to get you zooming toward the benefits of play. And, yes, we will do it all in a playful interactive way that brings the ideas and your fears to life.
How do people learn to ski jump? It all starts with the courage to get to the top of the hill and then a friendly push. Hang on -- we promise this is gonna be fun!

Maya Georgieva | Director, Education Futures, XReality
Are you ready for a thrilling double black diamond run? Is your avatar ready? Let's explore how learning is transformed when we begin to replace ourselves with digital representations in virtual environments. Our identities impact our online behavior, but studies have shown that the reverse is also true - our online personas impact real-life behavior.
We'll examine cutting-edge research and examples of avatars to understand the ethical challenges of multi-user virtual environments and the provocative questions they raise. Let's explore the use and psychology of avatars to ensure that virtual learning is based on equity, diversity and inclusion. Join us as we co-create a future that doesn't confine itself to a promise of technology but instead fulfills what it means to be human.
