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).

Actividades da SLED

A SLED é a lista de discussão de educadores em SL, criada por Pathfinder Linden que muitos conhecem. Apesar da leitura dos digests da mailing list ser um verdadeiro quebra-cabeças e requerer muita paciência e capacidade de filtragem por parte de quem a lê (sorry, mas é mesmo!), de vez em quando consegue-se identificar algo que chama a atenção.

Aqui fica o link para o calendário das actividades educativas previstas no âmbito da SLED. Algumas delas podem ser bastante interessantes! (para o cálculo da hora GMT, acrescentar 8h às indicadas). Divirtam-se aprendendo! 🙂

__________________________________________

Nota após redacção: em trabalho conjunto com o meu colega António Moreira (que por motivos profissionais não vai poder estar presente) irei proferir a keynote logo no seguimento da sessão de abertura.

Conto com todos, como sempre tenho contado, e como sempre, têm estado presentes (no matters the ways!) 🙂
