Big day for the DEN in SL

Wednesday, July 1, is a big day for the DEN in SL! First, there will be a BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) session at NECC conducted by several team members from the DEN in SL Leadership Council. The session is completely full, but you can still participate in-world and show your support for educators in Second Life. The BYOL will be at 10:30 a.m. EST (that would be 7:30 a.m. SLT) and will start at the DEN in SL headquarters (2DP). There may be bandwidth issues, so be prepared for last-minute changes!

Closing the day will be the second in the series of DEN Forums. The topic this week: Technology Must-Haves vs. Bells and Whistles. This forum will be facilitated by Celestia Cazalet. Come prepared to not only share your favorite technology tools, but ready to defend its use in your classroom. We’ll discuss what technologies are good, which are bad, and which might be being overused for the sake of technology. Through discussion, we’ll attempt to learn how to balance technology with other teaching tools. We’ll meet in Room 201 at 2DP.

Take a break from the NECC madness and relax with us at the forum!
