One of the new technologies that has been taking the education world by storm has been Second Life. I’ve written about it a few times on Digital Passports, but the DEN is now officially jumping feet first into the pool. It might look like all fun and games, but there’s some serious educational opportunities there. So how’s a STAR Discovery Educator supposed to get their start there and figure out how to navigate the virtual landscape? Easy! Just turn to the Second Life Leadership Council!
Like all of our leadership councils, the SL council is made up of dedicated STARs who are interested in taking a leadership role in their community. They’ll be hosting events, facilitating communication, and helping support newbies get their start. T
I’m very happy to provide you a link to the SL blog where you can read more about the DEN’s adventures in SL and also learn about what sorts of events they have planned. Exciting stuff! Please join me in welcoming Riptipe Furse (Fred Delventhal), Lor Fredriksson (Lori Abrahams), Beth Kohnke (Beth Knittle), Celestia Cazelet (Elaine Plybon), JessieMarie Flanagan (Anne truger) and Laelia Laval (Nancy Sharoff).
