I subscribe to several hundred educational blogs and scan them once a week. Sometimes my subscriptions lead to various invitations. I receive frequent announcements about live webinars, virtual conferences and opportunities to tour virtual worlds in education. It seems the word if the year for 2009 will be VIRTUAL. Virtually everything that involves communication other than doctor appointments can be done virtually; and the virtual doctor is just around the corner. Just how far will virtual reality go and what will be the pros and cons? How will it change our collective connectedness? Will it improve learning and hamper interpersonal f2f skills? I will be adding some virtual resources soon.
