Virtual Worlds

I firmly believe interactive virtual environments offer exploratory experiences that reinforce learning, especially learning in relationship to history.  The virtual Forbidden City is just one of a growing number of environments being developed for educational purposes.  In the future, I will share links to those I find particularly interesting  here.

Virtual Forbidden City

The virtual Forbidden City is the product of a collaboration between IBM and the Palace Museum in Beijing, China.  It's a wonderful free online experience.  I wrote a complete narrative of my experience there for Heritage Key.
