Second Life - Have a look (Fly) around!

secondlife

For a few years now I have been entering Second Life and exploring a completely new world to the one I had become accustomed too. It has been quite easy to do, as ALL of my exploration has been from the comfort of my home and my laptop. I have visited museums, art galleries, Universities, various educational locations and some simply amazing historical sites.

As an educator, my favourite, regular destination has been the International School's IslandThe island was set up by @shamblesguru and is designed to support mainly k-12 educators with their ongoing professional development challenges. One of the the most popular areas on the island is the three Towers -  Curriculum, Information, Technology. In these towers is a growing index of education places in Second Life and probably the most comprehensive collection of education links in Second Life itself [1. International Schools Island]. As well as finding huge amounts of useful information to enhance my CPD, I have attended seminars in the Mountain top retreat and engaged in discussions with other educators.

What’s the Goal of Education?

April 25, 2019 by Tom Whitby @tomwhitbyAs adults we generally learn about things that we need to learn about. Of course we also have an opportunity to learn about things we would like to learn about. We do not have anyone assigning us projects, or books or exams for which to prepare. The exception to that would be the job requirements in a job that we have chosen. Theoretically, we work in a job that…See More
