Just think about it! Summertime (read: NO SCHOOL!) is right around the corner. What are your plans this summer?
Here’s one option: If you’re not already a Discovery Educator you might want to check it out here.
Here’s another option: Explore the multi-user virtual environment (MUVE) of Second Life. Why? Hint, hint: DEN has established a presence there! Rather than repeat Elaine’s (Texas blog) post you can read it here. Suffice it to say that DEN is really expanding into the world, the virtual world that is! Be on the look-out for upcoming information on the grand opening of DEN in SL. In the meantime, if you don’t have an account (they’re ***FREE***) go over to Second Life and create one. Go through the Orientation Island and get yourself inworld. You can click on the ‘Search’ button at the bottom of your screen (when you’re in-world) and type in ‘Discovery Education Network’. You’ll have the option of joining the group (which I STRONGLY reccommend) and teleporting to the location on EduIsland II. If you’re in-world look me up. I’m Laelia Laval and ‘normally’ sport a flaming pink tousled hair-do! Although that tends to change as often as my moods!
