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

Superhero Origin Story

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.

FAQ to Renne: What does your closet look like?


Question: What does your closet look like?

Answer: People often ask me this question about my closet after seeing me in various outfits. Most of the time they answer their own question correctly. “Is it all lined up in rainbow order?” Pretty much, yes! I like to line up colors by inside out spectrum order: Yellow, Orange, Coral, Red, Magenta, Pink, Purple, Blue, Cyan, and Green.

This photo is of my tops section, kind of squish to fit in my square photo format. There are a few tops (very few!) next to the magenta you can’t see: purple, cyan, green, multi-colored and even black. Then the skirts and dresses are in color-coded order as well on the other side of the closet.

With this closet layout, it is easy to pick out colored outfits for the day to suit my mood or the particular message I need to deliver.
