As our website went live this week, I’m totally stoked to be able to start blogging about Virtual Conflict Resolution: Turning Swords to Ploughshares, one of the winners of this year’s Digital Media and Learning Competition. See the website here. Also, our Ning network site should be ready for public joiners soon. I’ll update as soon as that’s the case.
Virtual Conflict Resolution: Turning Swords to Ploughshares brings together digital learning technologies and international humanitarian assistance efforts. Students and educators enter an immersive, multi-sensory game-based environment that simulates real disaster relief and conflict resolution conditions in order to learn first-hand the necessary tools for sensitive and timely crisis response.Virtual Conflict Resolution: Turning Swords to Ploughshares, and www.virtualpeace.org are the products of the collaborative efforts of the Duke-UNC Rotary Center, Duke University, HASTAC and the MacArthur Foundation.
