Education in virtual/real worlds

my second life and the first one

At the Pavilion

It was 15h in Portugal, when people are working in RL, which means people in Pacific Time were waking up (I suppose, I’m not sure). I’m still wondering how many people could have appeared at my presentation at The Pavilion! More than 30 persons! I think we can take this observation as a measure of the Education Faire success and the congratulations go directly to Pathfinder Linden, who had the idea for the Faire.

The session was very participated. I felt I let some people thinking about the ideas presented… (that is good! 🙂 )

At the end, some questions were made both in written chat both in voice. I’ve answered them in voice. But I felt that I’ve missed some written chat in the meanwhile. Always the problem with voice and chat at the same time, knowing there’s people who don’t ear the conversation.

New contacts were made. New persons are now colleagues to discuss common research concerns. It was very good.

A special thanks to friends and colleagues who could appeared (from Portugal and from Brazil).

Back… to reality!

That’s it!

I’m still on holidays (until the end of this week), but … September will be a very hard month (as it would be October, Nov, Dec… and all the new year…) and it is better to begin working right away! 🙂

I’ve some news to post here related to a very new findings about SL. To my students, i’ll send comments during the weekend. To my colleagues, we will meet next week to talk about different issues. To all candidates of the courses I’m the Coordinator, the results should be published within the period announced.

Welcome back to all! 🙂
