Wicked Cool Information
I was slightly benched from SL due to a nasty bout of Blue Screen, but, fear not faithful readers, I am back in the clenches of my virtual identity.
I have come by some excellent resources, and want to share them with you!!!
First, George Kurtz (SL Butch Dae), sent a nice link to SLED about the bennies of educational gaming. It is well worth a look-see - especially if your colleagues poo-poo the idea of using games in the college classroom. George also posted a link to Parade of Games - a very cool site linking out to free games to use in the classroom.
Speaking of games...the Community College without Borders Project just built a Blue Obelisk Garden and Science Complex for Open Notebook Science on the Second Nature Sim in Second Life. This was built to highlight the cutting-edge open chemistry work of Dr. Jean-Claude Bradley, Associate Professor of Chemistry, at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA.
Up t0 15 people can play the Blue O game to test their knowledge of Lewis Structures. Oh....you sooooo know you wanna!!!
