The Open Cobalt Alpha will be featured in a keynote presentation by Julian Lombardi and Mark McCahill on the first day of the 2010 Boston Immersive Education Initiative Summit (April 23rd-25th).  The event is made possible through special arrangement with the Woods College of Advancing Studies at Boston College and is organized specifically for educators, researchers, and school/university administrators.  The three-day conference consists of presentations, panel discussions, break-out sessions and workshops that provide attendees with an in-depth overview of immersive learning platforms and technologies. The Summit will feature new and emerging virtual worlds, learning games, educational simulations, mixed/augmented reality, and related teaching tools, techniques, technologies, standards and best practices. The Education Grid, Open Cobalt Alpha, Project Wonderland, Second Life, realXtend, and Open Simulator are among the immersive learning technologies that will be featured. Members of the Initiative's open file format, library, psychology, mixed reality, and K-12 (kindergarten through high school) groups will also give special presentations and workshops.  There will also be a hands-on workshop featuring Open Cobalt Alpha.
