Second Life Teacher’s Toolkit PF Anderson, pfa@umich.edu a.k.a. Perplexity “Lexi” Peccable (SL)

Education as SL’s “killer app” “ Second Life removes the distance from the distance learning equation.” Joe Miller, quoted in “Is Second Life Learning’s Second Chance?” T+D (Training & Development): http://tdblog.typepad.com/td_blog/2008/01/is-second-life.html

“ Second Life removes the distance from the distance learning equation.” Joe Miller, quoted in “Is Second Life Learning’s Second Chance?” T+D (Training & Development): http://tdblog.typepad.com/td_blog/2008/01/is-second-life.html

SL for distance learning “ Even up to present, much of distance learning has been made time convenient but impersonal. Avatar-based virtual world education is highly interactive, providing the same convenience of not having to travel while providing a richer, more effective and more enjoyable experience. … Whether used for distance or classroom learning, the benefits of this rapidly expanding and adaptable virtual technology become manifest. The most common disadvantages that have existed in online education are now overcome.” Theodore Wright, Second Life as a Virtual Learning Environment. < http://www.dokimos.org/secondlife/education/>

Education as a driver for SL “ I think five years, ten years from now, those few things that we couldn’ t have even imagined, all of that innovation will come out of the educator community itself. They will experiment, they’ l l push the boundaries, they’ l l quantify how it’ s being used as a learning platform and how it’ s teaching students in ways that they couldn’ t be taught before.” http://blog.secondlife.com/2008/06/02/inside-the-lab-podcast-a-discussion-on-education-in-second-life/
