What Are Kids Learning in Virtual Worlds?

So, it will be tomorrow before I get to post my final thoughts on the Virtual School Symposium. In the meantime, I got this from the MacArthur E-newsletter that I get in my inbox.
What Are Kids Learning in Virtual Worlds?

You are invited to a panel discussion on the wonders and worries of virtual worlds for kids and parents on Wednesday, November 14, 2007 at 6:00 p.m. at the Davidson Conference Center at the University of Southern California. Participants include journalist Anastasia Goodstein, Global Kids Director Barry Joseph, UCLA Professor Yasmin Kafai, MacArthur Vice President Julia Stasch Common Sense Media CEO Jim Steyer, and USC Professor Doug Thomas. To attend, please register by November 10. MacArthurs $50 million digital media and learning initiative seeks to help determine how digital technologies are changing the way young people learn, play, socialize, and participate in civic life. View the invitation.

I can't be in California on the date of this session. It's too bad the organizers don't make this an accessible session by simulcasting it on a software like Elluminate Live! Our schools use this web conferencing tool, and it's almost as good as being there.

The recent Virtual School Symposium had a number of their sessions that we webcast using Elluminate Live, and that is the tool that is used exclusively by CIDER for their sessions.
