Abstract

The study is to investigate whether virtual worlds are a space for digital learning and exploring pedagogies. The paper discusses virtual worlds from the perspective of disruptive thinking, emerging ideas and lateral connections.A survey was sent out to The Australian and New Zealand Virtual Worlds Working Group (VWWG) community in which the 13 authors who responded provided rich data for further understanding current themes and issues. It is held that the respondents represent expert opinion. The paper was written by a team of researchers who had diverse backgrounds and viewpoints on the topic. What was found from the process is that it there still seems to be a perception that virtual worlds are untested grounds.
