Second Life, OpenSim, What do you want to be?

Worked with Mo Hax on this video in preparation for some upcoming workshops we're doing on Second Life. Our plan is to use this as an intro to our presentation to give them just a little view of Second Life before we get into the details of how it is used and what it can do for teachers and students.

Our first presentation is a full day where we'll take the learners through detailed information of how to sign up for and use Second Life. Then we'll take it down to a smaller scale of two hours for my county's technology camp and give them a quick "how and why" followed by a short session on creating an avatar.

Really excited to be working with him on this project as he gives a whole different perspective to the presentation and how Second Life can be used in education. We hope to share more materials from the presentation later, but for now, sit back and enjoy the video.


  1. eek! i LOVE LOVE LOVE it! i feel so famous!! :) haha!

  2. Julie thanks for the opportunity to collaborate on this stuff. Working with educators has always been something I've meant to do, and now am able to with your help. Geeky educators are just 'my people' I am finding. (I know, 'And you are surprised by this why?')

    Ann, I think you were famous long before that video! :P
