NMiEF seeks to bring about greater vibrancy to the new media scene in the education context, firstly through fostering enhanced interactions among both local and international educators in a real-time virtual education conference on Second Life and secondly to equip Secondary School students with basic new media skills through the rare opportunity to appreciate and immerse in new media culture.
