Virtual worlds are an emerging technology with rich social, commercial and pedagogical applications. They are particularly popular with youth and young adults. This presents today's educators with the challenge of keeping pace with the learners of tomorrow. Do we need a new pedagogical model to integrate virtual worlds in the curriculum? Do we still need a real classroom? We would like to discuss issues such as these at a round table with academics who are interested in emerging technologies. Furthermore, the discussion will be a forum to exchange current projects and interests, and therewith, opportunities to establish research partnerships.
