If you’re not in the “oh, god, how silly” camp in conversations about 3Dinternet virtual environments, and you want to investigate Second Life beginning at a safe and informative entry point, the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), an 85,000 member organization with well over 3,000 of them using SL, has created a new way to enter the environment, accessible at the webpage at http://secondlifegrid.net/programs/education . You can friend me “Johnann Waydelich” on the ISTE library sim at the Johnson and Wales University bakeshop lab site.

Every year we would have PowerPoint in-services of how you can spruce it up for your presentations. Thank goodness it’s all just about over now…..
The presentation by Nancy Duarte tells it like it is and offers some great resources and advice along with links. A definite must see for any teacher. Bring life into presentations!
