About the jokaydia Unconference!

The jokaydia Unconference is a free event which provides professional development and networking opportunities for educators and facilitators who are exploring innovative strategies, spaces and technologies for learning. It is a self-organising event which is supported by the Islands of jokaydia Community of Practice.

The aim of our annual Unconference is to celebrate the year's discoveries and achievements and welcome SL residents both old and new to share their work... and you are invited to participate! Propose a presentation, workshop, roleplay, game or panel session.

To get involved you can:

Ideas for sessions could include:

  • Give a presentation on recent virtual worlds project or initiative
  • Run a workshop which demonstrates a tool or strategy you're using
  • Lead a discussion on a hot topic or convene a panel session
  • Teach a building or scripting class and share your virtual worlds skills
  • Create a roleplay or immersive activity for participants to visit during the unconference
  • Run a newbie event for new resident
  • Create an exhibit or display to share at the unconference
