CAVE Exploration

Image

The picture above is from my exploratory visit to CAVE Island. The acronym CAVE is Community of Academic Virtual Educators. The trip was/is truly fascinating. The scenery is detailed and enhances the experience. The amount of information is almost overwhelming. I know I will visit CAVE Island again.

I learned about virtual meeting places for educators, virtual Alaskan wetland exploration by grade school students, presentations on hiring veterans with TBI, and studies of gaming with adults over 50. (I resemble that last study.) The caves seem to go on and on. Just when you think you have all of it, there is a hovering door for you to transport yourself (Star Trek-style) to another area.

The island is a cooperative of the following entities:

  • Boise State University’s EDTECH Department
  • AECT SL
  • iNACOL
  • ARVEL SIG
  • AECT Library

I am sure since the entities cast a wide net, one will see not only a casual passerby (done) but one will see students from all over the world gathering information. While exploring, I was able to meet a person from Greece and a quick hello to a fellow Edtech student. I think it is that world aspect that is finally coming into view.
