2017 MODL: Toys to play with on OpenSim: train engines, balloons to pop, rockets for role play

Toys to play with on OpenSim: train engines, balloons to pop, rockets for role playWe have elaborate toys in virtual worlds, but they don’t clutter the closet.   Here are videos about three.  This is the kind of content we might use in our upcoming Web Report.  Watch on YouTubeLearn English suggestionIt would be great if one popped when someone typed the correct word in chat. Or the balloons could even ask a question to be answered, and then maybe give a prize, or just a congratulatory message in chat. Perhaps a scoreboard.   LEO NetworkIdeationThe learning plan offers tasks demonstrating achievements of a learning objective. Success on a task bursts 1 to 5 balloons depending on task difficulty.A learner has a column on the scoreboard.  Each pop creates a balloon in the column.The balloons pile up.  Filling the column to the top is a win.  In competitive play, all learners have a place on the scoreboard.They compete to win early.  But everyone who learns is a winner.********************************************More after the break*************************************************Metaverse events, recent and upcoming Twitterverse Short Poetry Workshop, Tue 9/26, 7pm SLTThis week the Short Poetry Workshop presents Twitterverse, which is a short poem of 140 characters or less – just like a Tweet.  So come down to the Short Poetry Library to learn, write and share your Twitterverse.  East Cookie, Cookie (185, 121, 23)Shadow poetry resoucesAvatarFest 2017 Sharing our light.
