From my friend Cris Crissman, the announcement about a presentation next week I'm giving in Second Life. This will be my first official presentation in Second Life and I'm so excited about it!
Announcing the USDLC Star Teacher Series . . .
“New School Year — Cool Tools Here: Cool Cat Teacher Vicki Davis

“Tips on Starting the School Year Right”
WHY WE MEET IN SECOND LIFE?
See Vicki’s post on “The Frontier of Education: Web 3D” (March 2, 2007)
“. . . encourage educators to understand change and become a part. Help

future that will be full of change. Are you preparing them for that?
I am not an expert on the 3D web, but I know enough to believe that this
is indeed the next evolution of the Web.
How it will look and what it will be will largely be determined by the
pioneers and visionaries who are moving into the new frontier: the 3D
What do you think?”
