If you don’t already know about the 2010 Reform Symposium which begins tonight and runs through Sunday then please do yourself a favor and check out their website. A detailed schedule of events can be found by clicking on ‘Schedule’ along the top menu.
I hope you’ll stop in for Kevin Jarrett’s presentation, ‘Second Life ™ in Education…An Introduction’, which is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. EST (so that would be 4:30 p.m. SLT). For more information at his presentation, click here. KJ (as he is fondly known) is a veteran SLifer. My first encounter with Kevin was via his blog, Welcome to NCS-Tech, where he so generously shares new website finds. Imagine how thrilled I was when I discovered we were both going to the Google Certified Teacher training in New York back in 2007 (could it really be that long ago?). I had already ventured in to SL, decided that Orientation Island was waaaaaaaaaaay too scary (you should have seen it back then!) and promptly went back to RL. It was during the GCT training that KJ convinced me to give SL another shot. And I did….with KJ waiting for me in-world. And I’m glad I did. Thanks KJ! And best of luck tonight, I know you’ll rock the virtual-sphere!
