The Place Metaphor in 3D CVEs: a Pedagogical Case Study of the Virtual Stage
Keywords:virtual stage, 3D collaborative virtual environments, collaborative learning
This paper outlines a pedagogically-oriented case study of the use of a 3D collaborative virtual environment (3D CVE) to break down barriers between partners from different cultural backgrounds whilst performing collaborative activities on a 3D â??virtual stageâ??. The 3D collaborative laboratory (3DCollab) described in this paper served as a learning exchange platform to address the need for ICT students to practice collaborating remotely. It facilitated cultural exchange in a risk-free, fun, and informative environment where learning was constructed and played out on virtual stages in a 3D CVE, in the performance of a dramatized version of Platoâ??s â??Allegory of the Cave
