What’s been going on? Well, I’ve been dividing my time between SLedupotential (which is due to ISTE-NECC at midnight tonight), my K12 Online Conference panel contribution (see: Kevin Jarrett and Sylvia Martinez “Second Life: K-20 Educators Exploring Virtual Worlds – Panel”) , a presentation of information for my district superintendent on the Teen Grid and what we can do with students there, and… um…, oh yeah! Teaching LOL!
The point here is that while I have been “playing around” (yeah right!) in SL for seven months, I have not been actively following the research and resources that have developed in that time. Oh, there is the occasional post or shared experience that make SL my bread and butter so to speak, but for these endeavors, I have been actively searching and reading, and frankly, I am utterly astonished at the sheer volume that has accumulated in that time. I have found oodles of machinima that address happenings on the teen Grid, as well as many articles and white papers to do with the MG. They have all been diligently added to our Sledupotential wiki, but I wonder when I’ll have the time to read or watch them all?
