Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education officially opens 3-29-17. Be sure to check out their official web site for conference session and events dates and times and all their info. I took a sneak peek at press day and grabbed a few photos. There is an Under The Sea mermaid area near the events stage area and you can pick up some cool free gifts including mermaid and merman outfits, AOs and more and the extended underwater areas are beautiful and make for great exploring. So besides learning a few things you can also enjoy the scenery and events.
