“Living and Learning in Second Life,” a Firsthand Exploration and Tour of a User-Created Virtual World.
The focus of this session will be on exploring Second Life firsthand. Conference attendees will be given a chance to log into Second Life and explore unique learning environments created by educators, as well as interact with students and educators across the world using Second Life live during the session.
John Lester will give a tour of the “Campus” region in Second Life, a virtual space where students and faculty from around the world are currently holding classes. He will encourage attendees to explore examples of collaborative student work as well as common meeting areas in Second Life where people gather and share knowledge across academic disciplines.
