Blue World Notes: Meet IDIA Staff in Blue Mars Tomorrow at 2pm Pacific!

Tomorrow at 2pm Pacific, IDIA director John Fillwalk and his staff will be in-world to talk about their massive immersive education site which recently launched in Blue Mars, replete with historical site recreations and sculptures that have been recreated by laser scanning the originals. It's a great opportunity to learn and talk about 3D spaces as an educational tool, and the future plans IDIA has with Blue Mars. (And if you're an educator involved in Second Life, you'll likely already familiar with IDIA, a lab with Ball State University, as it's also done several cool projects in SL.)

As you might have noticed from the above screenshot, John's Blue Mars avatar name is conveniently named "John Fillwalk", and he sports a black blazer and surprisingly hip anime-flavored hair. Meet him and his team tomorrow at 2pm -- just go to the IDIA Lab city in Blue Mars (Blink teleport page here) and find them waiting for you then near the first spawn point.
