Fuzzy Infinity Scarves by Renne Emiko Brock-RIchmond

I’ve got some new products for you this year including art apparel that is made of fabric that I design! Above is my “lavender currents” pattern in the plushy fuzzy infinity scarf. I also have new hand dyed shawls, scarves, and obis. All can double as superhero capes!

Superhero Origin Story

“Courage to Encourage: Origin Story Lessons” at @fcvw Federal Consortium for Virtual Worlds Conference on March 7

Superhero Origin Story

Join me March 7 at 12:30 PM PST for “Courage to Encourage: Origin Story Lessons” at the Federal Consortium for Virtual Worlds Conference. The event is online in a virtual world, please go to this site to register http://consortium.militarymetaverse.org/

My presentation provides step-by-step guidance for instructors and trainers to tap into inspiring students through developing their mission and how that pursuit fuels their educational drive and development. Every student superhero has a catalyst that changes their lives and is the incentive to improve themselves and the world around them. Discover students’ origin stories and principal motivation to turn passion into positive projects and promote partnerships.

Virtual worlds foster flexible, imaginative play to reveal and utilize students’ individual stories. Create a safe learning environment where this vulnerable intersection transforms into a lesson of confidence, compassion, and connections with other superheroes. After exploring the events and elements of their influential story, implement transmedia storytelling through multimedia, blogs, social networks, and virtual world engagement to support student centered success and unique learning styles while inspiring universal listening, inquiry, and teambuilding.
