A Brief Brief

For two days Second Life's favourite and most watched media network is throwing open its doors in a bonanza of style, content and fun. All your favourite Treet shows have booths and events happening during the two day event which will blow your socks off (even if you're barefoot).

The Expo will be held on Tropical Treet (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Tropical%20Treet/134/214/22) with a mixture of scheduled events and high profile shenanigans going on through out the weekend. There's hunts, prizes, freebies, music, live shows and a chance for you to be on TV.

Shakespeare continues to inspire creative storytelling and sparks the imagination no matter where the stage. One of the more interesting presentations during the 2010 Best Practices in Education conference was one given by Joff Chafer on Virtual Performance.

Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education Conference 2010 is a completely in-world conference on ... virtual worlds, best practices and how they are used in education. It is not uniquely focused on Second Life however obviously there is a very strong SL bent to the conference owing to where it is being held.

Maslow's Hierarchical Hideaway on Designing Worlds

We were very pleased to note that Jackie Rexel's "Maslow's Hierarchical Hideaway", that we first covered on Designing Worlds when it appeared at SL6B, was featured recently in Treet's Virtual World Best Practices in Education.

This is a fascinating and ingenious use of virtual world technology for education and we're happy to recommend viewers of VWBPE to our coverage on Designing Worlds (http://treet.tv/shows/designingworlds/clips/ep048).
