Greetings! In case you missed the blog posts on blog.secondlife.com, our first annual RL Education Support Faire is starting tomorrow. Please save and read the attached notecard for details. -Pathfinder Linden

The 4 Faire regions will be opened to the general public on Sunday morning at 6am PST. (15 ora italiana) They will remain open to the public through the week.

Please see our wiki page for all the details on booth locations, schedule of presentations, and more!


That wiki page will continue to exist after the Faire ends, serving as both a historical record and an evolving resource we can use to help RL Educators find the support they need from both Linden Lab and Resident Organizations.

George Linden will be focusing on helping the wiki page grow, so please contact him directly if you'd like to help or have suggestions.

Take care,

Oggi mi sono iscritta al corso "uso di Sloodle" di ANITEL e sono contenta di poter finalmente sperimentare con un gruppo di docenti questo strumento cui cercavo di avvicinarmi da mesi senza riuscirci.

Ho frequentato la land di Sloodle ,i gruppi Sloodle tenants and Sloodle, le riunini di sviluppatori, preso gli oggetti di integrazione e comunicazione a disposizione nella land; avevo perfino prenotato presso Daniel Livingstone una parcel dove fare sperimentazione con i miei studenti ma ho disdetto la prenotazione perchè non avevo ancora ben scoperto come utilizzarlo e solo ora ho realizzato che ..mi mancava il server! per questo non riuscivo a caricare sloodle 3.0.!

RezEd Best Practice in Education

SLBPE post of Phelan Corrimal on RezEd

Comment by Phelan Corrimal 8 hours ago Hi folks - have been tied up with a pile of RL issues and having gotten most out of the way its time to get back to SL :-). Anyone interested in helping out on the organizing committee please let me know before January 16th. I'm proposing dates of March 27th-March 29th for the conference. If anyone knows of any immediate conflicts that would be good to know as well. Another post on this will go out tomorrow on the SLED list.

Comment by Phelan Corrimal on September 23, 2008 at 11:45am Hi Folks --- Two updates: I'm proposing a first meet on the SLBPE 2009 to be held October 7th at Rockcliffe's Greenhouse on Rockcliffe I for anyone that is interested in helping out.

Second proposal is for the conference dates to be February 20-22, 2009.
The date choice is deliberate for two reasons:
1) is that it is approximately 6 months opposite the SLCC in August.
2) is that it the timing works well for the Journal of Virtual Studies launch which will be on March 1st now. The journal is a peer review publication which will be distributed through EBSCOhost and ProQuest electronically and therefore searchable by Universities around the world.

I will have more details available on the 7th.

SLBPE Format
Posted by Phelan Corrimal on August 12, 2008 at 12:56am in SLBPE 2009

Back to SLBPE 2009 Discussions

My thought here is not necessarily to goto the same scale as the 2007 conference but rather to keep the format fairly consistent with the last SLBPE and to make two other changes: 1) 3 x 8hr days rather than 1x 24hr day, and 2) do a Fri-Sat-Sun rather than have everything on the Friday.Also, the timing is such that it is almost exactly 6 months after the SLCC which I think would be a good opportunity to run one so as not to interfer with what Jonathan and the other good folks coordinating SLEDcc are doing.Thoughts?(See: http://slbestpractices2007.wikispaces.com/ for a look into how Desi, Fleep and others arranged the SLBPE 2007).

2009 White Project

h.24 del 31 dicembre 2008
h.0,0 del 1 gennaio 2009
In Middle East we have said "happy New year" an hour ago with Irah Anatine and friends

White Project was created as a response to the Middle East crisis, December 2008.

In a time when the world and the web are on fire and everybody is taking sides, we decided to create an alternative side: the side of all the ones who seek development instead of excuses, who value human life instead of justifications for hate. The side of the future. We are not shouting peace as a naive dream: we seek progress. We are the next generation of citizens and will inherit the problems of the present. We understand that, unless individuals get together to refuse perpetual hate and take concrete actions, this future will be no different from the present or the past.

We also believe that the most urgent concrete action to take is to clarify people’s minds, by creating this third dimension. When millions of people see and scream “palestian children are being killed”, we say: “children are being killed”. When people say “israeli youth is suffering” we say “youth is suffering” When world movements say “arabs or israeli of the world unite” we say “citizens of the future unite”.
We are a white page, as we refuse the weight of the past. Every citizen should be proud of it’s cradle. Today, and because of the current situation, non of us has reasons to be proud. We can do better. All of us. Together.
