So what would you like to read and discuss in a group?????

We’ll start by asking you to introduce yourself.

Then ask you to tell us about your affiliations, organizations and groups.
After that we’ll start taking suggestions and discussing books on virtual environments, immersive learning and games and simulations.

Welcome to the Inevitable Fashion Shoot Experience pre-shoot prep!
Icecrown Citadel[/url] or as it is called by the locals, ICC, the bane of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, will be the setting for a high-fashion WoW shoot. Fashion event producer and Horde stylist, Grid, who was featured in her own special, will be on hand to help models with their fashion choices, poses and battle pet accessories.

This event sponsored by Shaomai's House of Fashion will be looking for the screenshot that could be featured or even be on the cover on VEJ. On hand will be several screenshooters whose work has graced the pages of VEJ , AERA’s Applied Research in Immersive Environments for Learning as well as the Inevitable Betrayal and SIGVE Flickr sites.

Cover model Izzy/Notalemur, will be there to help neophyte MMORPG models and afterwards introduce models to Timeless Isles high society.

Award winning Machinimatographer, Blue Lowtide, will also be on hand to capture fiero moments, elite rings, in-raid pings and 6 uncommon pets.

Now we didn’t get permission from the Lich King, but Rebecca and the rest of the Retro Raiders took care of securing the location. This may very well be the first fashion shoot there in years.

Rebecca told us, “After clearing ICC and defeating the Lich King, I remember turning to Hemoato and saying wouldn’t this be a perfect location for a high fashion shoot. But it wasn’t until Grid talked to me about the Holiday Fashion Extravaganza at one of Shaomai’s infamous cocktail and mining parties, that I realized that there was no other place that said Fierce Fashion like the ICC throne room.”

So come and strike a pose and rock your best Ugly Sweater, Snowman avatar or santa suit. Well make sure to keep your toon warm with a bit of retro raiding and NPC killing in between takes of your glam shots.

For the Grid and Fiero Films most recent runway production look here.

The mission of the Minecraft and More….. Unsymposium is to continue the discussion that began at the ISTE 2013 Conference at San Antonio. The most popular virtual world or game (depending on your viewpoint) was this lego looking, easy to navigate 8 bit digital sandbox.

The Fall Games MOOC from the Colorado Community College and the CCCS Hackathon Project are exploring making, hacking and gaming. Minecraft is the maker movement online and the UnSymposium will be hosting a building event – the Minecraft Challenge created by the rgMOOC.

Our purpose is to bring a group of educators together to discuss, plan and play in Minecraft.

We have activities starting on the top of the hour. We will be livestreaming all events through Google Hangout. Please be patient if we do not start exactly on time. We will be ending at 45 minutes after the hour to ensure time to setup the next Google Hangout.

On Friday night, we will be visiting the Morrowcraft server, and on Saturday you are invited to log into the Massively server and the Games MOOC server.

If you would like to participate in events on the Minecraft servers, you will need to have registered on the eventbrite site and then submitted your character name. The server is whitelisted so we will need to add you. The servers are using version 1.6.4, so you will need to make sure your account is set to 1.6.4.
