You can’t be online all the time that your students are online. Most projects in teaching and learning in immersive environments begin on a shoestring. You don’t have a lot of support from your school or institution. You need to find ways to support the work the students and participants will be doing. Just meeting in an immersive environment is not enough. You need other ways to share, collaborate, and create content together. If you are part of a K-12 or university system that utilizes a content or learning management system, you may already have some of the support tools you need to surround your students with synchronous and asynchronous methods of collaborating and communicating and producing content. But do those systems have all the tools you need? Could there be more options out there? This presentation will showcase tools for collaborating, sharing, creating content, managing your learners, and offering the most engaging synchronous and asynchronous support tools to your immersive experience.

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.
