My first (1st) Second (2nd) Life meeting
April 3, 2009 § Leave a comment
I attended my first ever Second Life (SL) conference last week.
It was organised by the friendly folks at Rez Ed.
I was part of discussion regarding the issues of mixed ages in virtual worlds.
I am glad that my school has purchased a Second Life (SL) private island so that we can track what happens with our students ( hopefully offering them a safer place to learn).
It was good to meet a variety of people (below) and I have since starting following their blogs/tweets.

In particuluar, it was great to come into contact with MathBear.
I am hoping to learn a great deal about teaching mathematics in virtual worlds from him.
It will be great for more maths teachers to get involved in developing these types of environments.
