Interactive Builds Presentation

Zotarah Shepherd, a student at Sonoma State University, gave a wonderful presentation on Saturday on interactive builds. She gave 6 aspects of interactive builds:

  1. Visualization of the subject

  2. Sounds about the subject

  3. Manipulate it: Relevant clickable animations, editable or physical moveable parts or building

  4. Literacy: Reading and/or writing. Questions to answer

  5. Notecard or signage explaining the education a purpose and goals of the build

  6. Some sort of logical ordering: color, number progression, so the visitor/student will be assured that all the points are accomplished or experienced

The first interactive build we went to was one she built on Multiple Intelligences. This is displayed at F/Xual Educational Services

Next we went to Cave Literature Alive and saw another wonderful example on an interactive build.

Zotarah left us with homework for the week. Now it is out turn! We are to see what you can come up with that you use like a tool that you could use in SL. We will show these at the TNC next week (10/25) at 10:00 am SLT. We hope to see everyone there!
