CS4: Second Life (3D Virtual Environment)
Second Life (S.L.) is an online 3D Virtual (Digital) World ... there are two areas that are full of virtual islands .... "The Main Grid" for those over the age of 18 and "The Teen Grid" for those ages 13-17.
Since opening to the public in 2003, it has grown explosively and today is inhabited by over 9 million residents from around the globe.
This session will look at what S.L. is, how to get your own avatar, how the main controls work ... but more importantly look at some of the opportunities for teaching and learning.
If you have time before the session have a look at some of the links, resources and videos here ...
