Second Life lessons (News Article, The Guardian)
For some, the virtual world's learning opportunities start with the basics: keeping your feet on the floor
Sitting in the front row, I'm looking casual, cool and surprisingly female. I appear to be the first to arrive for the conference but am soon joined by a rather glamorous redhead. We sit in silence. Nothing happens except that her legs change colour occasionally - green, purple and back to normal, or what passes for normal in these parts.

The ICT Library of Edu Island
The ICT Library is a not-for-profit endeavor (Second Life-only) created to reach out to members of the educational and training community working within Second Life (SL).
Funds received from sponsors will be used to expand the knowledge of SL members who are interested in using this virtual environment as a way to mediate classes or training.
It is based on a premise of taking information related to education in SL that exists on websites and various blogs, etc., and putting it in SL for display and demonstration.

Second Thoughts on Second Life
http://blog.genyes.com/index.php/2007/07/21/second-thoughts-on-second-life/
Second Thoughts on Second Life
Excellent Blog Posting
When I joined the group of educators in Second Life called the CAVE (see previous post) I promised myself I would do two things: 1) approach Second Life with an open mind and 2) write about it along the way. I have written about it to some extent (another previous post, My First Second Life Lesson), but it still feels like I have a long way to go.
And finally, to gain any REAL insight and perspective, I needed to re-read more seminal works in this area. I’m still working my way through some and I’ve written about them at the end of this post.

Skoolaborate
http://www.skoolaborate.com/
Skoolaborate
Stay tuned our Teen Second Life project has begun. A huge thanks to Linden Labs for making this possible and for their vision. Amazing that, in such a huge virtual world, a corporate organisation makes the time to support education.
I am Westley Field from MLC School in Sydney At MLC we believe that Global Citizenship is an essential and growing part of a rounded education.
Schools need to explore educational opportunities that will engage students and motivate them to learn.
Skoolaborate (a virtual collaborative space) and blog aims to bring together like minded schools from around the globe so that their students may share and learn from each other, in a virtual environment, through a variety of educational experiences. We hope that Skoolaborate will act as a vehicle that promotes Global Awareness and Understanding. The island itself will house a variety of areas. Our home base will establish the culture of the site. It will house information about Global collaborative projects, the participating schools, the site itself, and news and information for visitors.

Not school - not home - schome
http://www.schome.ac.uk
Not school - not home - schome - the education system for the information age.
Schome will be an education system that meets the needs of society and individuals in the 21st century.
Schome will value and support people in learning throughout their lives (cradle to grave).
Schome will include flexible use of both physical and virtual spaces to support learning processes and enhance community. The main focus of work on schome is currently on the use of Teen Second Life to give people 'a lived experience' of radically different models of education.
We are using Schome Park, our island in the Teen Grid of Second Life, to collect evidence about approaches to supporting learners. The educational models we are using on Schome Park fit within the scope of the eSIR Reference Statement (Twining et al. 2006 Appendix 1) and draw upon a wide range of approaches to education evident in the educational systems in use in different countries and informed by prominent educational thinkers.
