Second Life in Education

Over the past few weeks, I have been immersed in building a virtual British Literature classroom in Second Life. Educators are using SL as a teaching tool, and there is so much to talk about!

Instead of bogging us down with one long post, I thought I would do a series of spotlights on awesome content inworld.

Does anyone have a place they would like me to review?

To get us started in this journey, it is good for us to get to know some of the major players. Sarah Robbins, AKA, Intellagirl Tully, is an inspiration. Her work in SL is just incredible; I watched her teach a class the other night....her students were engaged...they covered difficult topics...it was all that a college classroom should be in the media age. I would be nowhere without her help....so please go check her out.

My other inworld inspiration is Bryan Carter, AKA Bryan Mnemonic. His resources for teaching English are great. He, too, asks students to tackle complicated material. His students are engaged...lively...energetic.

I have met my match for passion in these two educators...

"Terra Incognita is aimed at exploring online learning environments within the SL world. It is worth a look because it is currently setting the standard for showcasing Australian tertiary education in this new medium.

One of the striking features is the fact that the developer team, led by Decka Mah (aka in RL as Lindy McKeown) have gone for a design theme that does not mirror the RL USQ"

bp claims said...

I have to say bp claims, I dont know bp claims if its the clashing colours or the dangerous grammar, however this bp claims weblog is hideous! I imply, I dont need to sound like a bp claims know-it-all or anything bp claims, however could you could have presumably put a little bit extra effort into this subject bp claims. Its really fascinating bp claims, but you dont signify it well at all bp claims, man. Anyway, in my language, there usually are not much good supply like this bp claims.
