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...
