Hey, ya'll. Just want to toss out there that one of my favorite networks, Second Life, will be getting a lot of attention at ISTE's NECC come June 27-July 1 this summer.
I'm helping facilitate two 3-hour workshops on the topic, a 3-day running Second Life Playground, and a Birds of a Feather. I'm also helping put together a BOF on the topic of my favorite new VW for kids, Quest Atlantis: I'll be a bizzy bee, for sure. You can see (and register for, if you wish!) all our workshop and session descriptions at the NECC program search results page
and the playground description is here:
Second Life Playground
Monday, June 29, 8 am–4 pm; Tuesday, June 30, 9 am–4 pm; and Wednesday, July 1, 8 am–2 pm
Explore stations for creating avatars, navigating in Second Life, using Second Life for professional development, using Second Life with students, and exploring ISTE's Virtual island.
Coordinators: Lisa Linn, Temecula Valley Unified and Scott Merrick, University School of Nashville/Vanderbilt CSO
Interested in being "Supreme Poobah" at the Second Life Playground for a couple of hours? There are lots of slots to cover and we're asking for volunteers at http://necc09slplayground.wikispaces.com. Not going to be able to get to DC? No problem! Join the NECC Ning "Virtual NECCers" group
and the "Virtual NECCers" group in Second Life and keep up what what's what and where! If you can't find it in search, IM Scottmerrick Oh and you are there!
Cheers, all, and keep the sharing goin'!
