CUNY Games Network

Visit our website at http://games.commons.gc.cuny.edu (or by clicking the Visit Blog link on the left).

We connect educators from every campus and discipline at CUNY who are interested in games, simulations, and other forms of interactive teaching. We seek to facilitate the pedagogical uses of both digital and non-digital games, improve student success, and encourage research and scholarship in the developing field of games-based learning.

Avatar: An Adventure in Emergency Preparedness Training

  • Anders Gronstedt, of the Gronstedt Group, and I will be co-presenting CUNY SPS’ Emergency Shelter Course developed on behalf of the New York City Office of Emergency Management in the platform of Second Life (see http://www.secondlife.com).

    The presentation will be at 11AM Wed. Dec.15 and is titled Avatar: An Adventure in Emergency Preparedness Training. Both Anders and I will be in Second Life and will give a tour and demonstration of the different interactivities and features of the course. Our avatars in the simulation will be projected onto a screen with interactive video and audio available live in the CUNY Graduate Center. The presentation will be about 40 minutes with time immediately following that for Q&A.
