Henry Watson, Oct. 27, 2011

I am an Application Consultant/Architect/Developer with a focus on emerging technologies and innovation in learning. I am particularly interested in business and practical use of virtual worlds, augmented reality, serious games, and social learning. I live in Vancouver Canada and currently am working on a very exciting project for IBM that involves many of these elements.

Here is an example of one of my previous projects for IBM that was awarded a Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning award for Best Use of Virtual Worlds for Learning:

I am open to discuss and assist in any innovative learning projects that involve emerging technologies for the benefit of improving the learning experience.

    Amazing project! I'm an MA student - interdisciplinary - leadership, learning and technology - Needless to say I hope you share more of what you are doing.

    Thanks Jamie! My current project involves a 3D serious game / business simulation supported by a website containing various social tools that enable participants to connect, share, and learn from one another. This project is part of IBM's Smart Play Framework which is described in this short video: http://youtu.be/C1YaQRVLaIA
    If/when footage of this project is published I'll be sure to post it here. Cheers, Henry

    Henry, I am glad to stumble upon your post. I am not a techie nor I have the patience to try out myself what I am stating below!

    I wonder if SL can be used in imparting training. Like can we use SL to impart soft skill training to individuals wgo are scattered at different places and cannot get together for a net meeting or web video conference.

    If that is possible how can it be done? Is there already some such resources available?
    If it is possible I am seeing an additional social benefit in reducing travel and thus leaving less carbon footprint.

    At the moment I am just curious about the possibilities of SL in this area of application but may later want to make commercial use of this concept. So pl advise me if you think it fit.

    Thanks in anticipation :)

To the Einztein Team,
I welcome this very creative initiative that will expand our outreach to the world of knowledge and of knowledge exchange through concrete project proposals and project participation. My direct interest is in art criticism and painting, but my overarching one is to interact with any person working for a more enlightened and peaceful World. Einztein will go far.

Lukas B, Oct. 12, 2011

Hello everyone! My name is Lukas and I’m from Lithuania. I’m glad to join this project :)
A few days ago I took Carbon Footprint Challenge and i was really shocked about the results. My carbon emissions average was highest of my classmates. My result is very high, because I’m living in private house and school from my house is far away. I need a help, how save the nature please tell me. That’s it :)

Hi everybody! My name is Paulius, I’m from Lithuania. I glad to have a chance to join this project.Our class took Carbon Footprint Challenge, but our results were very different. I wasn’t happy about my results. My carbon emissions average was bigger to other in my country. If we want to reduce our carbon emission first we have to sort our rubbish. I hope that in the future my carbon emission will be lower. :))

My new group of students joined the project, they calculated their amounts of carbon emissions. Some of them were greatly suprised since their numbers were lower than the avarage. I was suprised at some numbers of my students calculations too, but it is obvious that the numbers are big of those students who live far from school or live in private houses with the lawns which have to mowed. They also pointed uot that the bulbs in their houses have to be replaced by energy saving ones. I hope that their participation in these calculations will lead to important changes in their lifstyles, everyday lives, and they will influence their family members to become more environmently-conciuos.

Justina G, Oct. 5, 2011

Hello everybody! My name is Justina and I’m from Lithuania. I’m very glad to join this project.

Recently I took Carbon Footprint Challenge and I was really happy about the results. My carbon emissions average was lower than most of my classmates and my country’s people. But I wasn’t very surprised about the results, because I always tried to save water and electricity, recycle and reuse things. I think that all those things should be important to everyone and I hope that in the future we all try harder to help our planet.

    Same here, but the only surprising thing was the fact that taking trips to different countries on plane actually dramatically increases our carbon footprint by a ton! I'm quite happy with mine this year because I haven't gone anywhere by plane. Haven't really gone to any places over the past two years!

    JG, I hope you're able to share with your classmates the good habits that help you keep your carbon emissions down. Great job!

Hello everyone! My name is Edvinas and I’m from Lithuania. I’m glad to have a chance to join this project.
I took Carbon Footprint Challenge several day ago and my results was nearly the same as the others in my country, but a little bit less. In my opinion it’s not so bad, but, of course, it can be better, so just try to lower them and our planet will be cleaner. Sorry, if I made a mistakes. :)

Hi guys, My school has taken part in the project for the second time. Sadly , our carbon footprint seems to be on ther rise. The main culprit is HOME, which means that little can be done about it due to out- dated technology of heating our houses.

    hello!my school has taken part in this project too.I'm glad my carbon footprint was below the average.I believe that we have to conserve energy and water, especially in our home!

    hi my name is belal im from egypt i know some ways you could reduce your CF for home you could turn off the lights when your not in your room and when brush your teeth you could turn off the water tap so you can save water.

Hello everyone! I’m Gabrielė from Lithuania. I’m really happy to join this project!I hope we all benefit from it. :)
I took Carbon Footprint Challenge and I was pleasantly surprised, because my results lower than classmates and our land rate. I would like that everybody’s results would be like mine. To achieve this, we must to do some things to decrease our carbon emissions. :)

    Hello, I am Barbara from Poland, Unfortunately, our carbon footprint seems to be on the rise:-( I am still getting data from my students and do hope the final outcome won't be that high.

    Hi Marco- cool post. Instead of posting it here in “Welcome to Einztein,” why not post it in the project “Home Grown”? If you agree, follow these steps: 1) go to http://beta.einztein.com/user/jason/discuss-grow-your-own-12522/ ; 2) join that project; 3) go to your home page (button at upper right) and find this post again; 4) press “edit this post”; 5) change the project in the drop down menu to “Home Grown”; 6) repost
