RezEd Report, Summer 2008

For anyone who is not aware, RezEd is a social networking site for educators working in virtual worlds. It was funded through a MacArthur grant last year, and started by Barry Joseph of Global Kids. The RezEd website is the first place a new educator should go when getting involved in this area of instruction. They have just released their first report that is filled to the brim with great information and resources for educators.

There is a really slick online version (complete with turning pages) and a downloadable PDF.

As a companion release to this report, there’s a podcast up with the following people discussing the ethics of virtual worlds:

James Paul Gee
Elizabeth Lawley
Aaron Walsh
Linda Burch
Peggy Sheehy
Sarah Robbins
Thomas Malaby
Donna Stevens
Tracy Rebe
Dixie Ching
Deborah Fields

This is something everyone needs in their library of resources.
