It's Not too Late for a Second Life Experience

A year ago fellow Star Discovery Educator Jennifer Brinson and I joined Jennifer Dorman in a “Making History Come Alive” issue of the Discovery Educators Resource Guide. Our article’s focus was What If You Could Change History? This time I have a different sales pitch: Want to Make History? That’s right. Join the Discovery Educator Network’s inaugural foray into Second Life with the webinar Get a Life, A Second Life, That Is.

second lifeWHEN? Tuesday, January 15th at 4 p.m. SLT (that would be 7 p.m. EST). I apologize for the last minute posting, but it is never too late to get a Second Life.

WHAT? A webinar aimed at educators who would like to learn more about Second Life and how this virtual world can contribute to your PLN (Personal/Professional Learning Network). The webinar will cover the basics of Second Life (how to create an account) and opportunities that abound for educators in-world.

WHY? Because SL is just the most amazing in-world 3-D virtual reality experience out there. Because it has unlimited educational applications.

WHO? Veteran SLers are definitely welcome, but this webinar will cover the basics.

We hope to see many of you in-world after the webinar, so I STRONGLY suggest that IF you THINK you MIGHT want to see what Second Life is all about, please download the client (FREE) and sign up (also FREE) PRIOR to January 15th. (By my math, you have 23 hours left before life as you know it changes forever). You’ll find all the information for this venture in the Google Groups in the ^Files^ section. The document is called ‘Creating an Account in SL’. And of course, if you have ANY questions about downloading the client and signing up, please let us know and we’ll guide you along.
