Description/Other Details
This session is focused on the Multi-user Virtual Learning Environments – SecondLife and TeachMe. Bruce Schroeder (UT), John Green (KS), Susan Davis (NC) and staff from North Carolina’s Virtual Public Schools, will join the group and share how they are using virtual environments to deliver training, host teacher job fair events, and provide classroom instruction.

This is something completely different were trying out, so it may be a little bumpy. But, that’s okay since it’s what this new community is all about — exploring new technologies, and learning how to use and implement them successfully.

For our next meeting we’ll establish group engagement protocols (how often we’ll meet), determine facilitation process and topics to cover of the next year.
