Hi, I’m Telos String in SL and Mary Del Bianco in RL. For what seems like forever, I have been an artist and an art teacher. This year I have given up my art teacher job to devote my time to technology. I will work with 6 – 8th graders twice a week in our computer lab and I will help other teachers integrate tech tools into their classrooms. I am also working with a few after school programs because learning is definitely 24/7 and not all kids have the same chance to get connected. I am working to help improve that situation. I am thrilled and anxious. With my art background I am confident in my project-based learning strategy skills but with technology I always feel a little behind the curve. Kids always know more than me! With Second Life DEN support though, I know I can keep up. The best PD on the planet is happening in SL. So I have offered my time and energy to keep the SL DEN active and at the head of the class. I am willing to help newbies even tho I still consider myself one. I am willing to learn, to build, and to create. I am a dedicated learner who believes that if we work together, we are better than any of us can be alone. See you in-world at 2DP!
