    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).

    See link: http://tragedyofthe.commons.gc.cuny.edu/

    The presentation 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.

    The presentation will be held here at the CUNY Graduate Center on Wed. Dec.15 at 11 AM.

    You can attend live in-person or join as an avatar through Second Life (or you can share your avatar presence on a screen with others if you wish). In either case, please send me an email as seating is somewhat limited both physically and virtually.

    My email is: aboyarsky@gc.cuny.edu

    Please let me know if you plan to attend.
