This week I am on vacation with my family, and unfortunately the Internet connection at the Historic Powhatan Resort here in Williamsburg, VA has only been working inconsistently since I arrived on Saturday. It looks like I’m going to have to postpone the final post in my series on using Virtual Worlds in Education until next weekend. In the meanwhile, here’s a few insightful and informative YouTube videos about using SL for educational purposes:
- This highly viewed “tour” video (imbedded below) focuses on “educational uses of Second Life”.
- This video focuses on “Learning in Three Dimensions” and “The 7 Sensibilities that Differentiate Virtual Social Worlds from other Interactive media”.
- Finally, here is one additional video that gives a real nice overview of how educators can use SL in the classroom.
See you next week for the wrap up on our series of posts focused on Virtual Worlds in Education, where we’ll check out a bunch of Second Life worlds that can be useful for educators and instructional applications. Thanks, and have a great week!
