Ever thought you were to old to play video games? Well… “Second Life” is a virtual community that is similar to a video game but has great value in joining. You can download it and begin by creating your avatar. Participation in “Second Life” provides a virtual area where you can collaborate with other educators. This has been around for a while but I just happened upon it recently. I have been meaning to inform you all of this GREAT tool. Not only will you get to know other educators in SL but also in RL (real life).
Collaborating with other educators via DEN blog and all other means allows us to share information and ideas without having to spend a lot of extra time trying to figure it out ourselves. I have read several articles about SL and see that it has a wide variety of possibilities. You can go to Second Life DEN Blog for more information.
Coming Soon…. A variety of sites with descriptions that educators can use reach our technology minded students. I hope everyone has a great weekend.
