This year I have begun a journey with my colleagues exploring the virtual world of Second Life for teaching, learning, and community building in our university. I am intrigued by the blue waters that Second Life offers for new expressions in communicating, teaching, learning, and multimedia development. New opportunities and professional relationships have developed in world, from taking part in a class with Intellagirl to meeting educators from England, Ireland, and the US.
With the desire of encouraging communication amongst SITE members and the Games & Simulations ITC, I have created a group in Second Life called the SITE Games & Simulations ITC. Please search for the group when you are next in-world and join. We will be holding our first in-world gathering at noon (SLT) on Tuesday, March 20th. Please feel free to IM me (EdTek Xeno) as well if you need help joining the group. If you haven’t visited Second Life yet, take this as an opportunity to get started. You can setup a free, basic account at http://www.secondlife.com.
See you in world!
