Second Life... que sabes de Second Life y sus aplicaciones en la educacion de nuestra era

Esta es una entrada en otro de mis blogs.. quizás lo quieran visitar en algún momento.. si no le tienen miedo al ingles.. claro... smiles.... 

El Blog en cuestion se llama

EFL Professor in SL

El mismo quiere relatar las aventuras de mi alter Ego.. Pionia Destiny en un mundo tridimensional que ya no se si es virtual, últimamente me parece mas real que virtual, ya que la interacción y el compartir de los saberes por parte de sus habitantes es muchas veces mas rico que el que he experimentado participando en una conferencia en la vida real. Trata sobre la participación de Pio en una conferencia que ocurre en un mundo virtual.. y demuestra como jugando en un mundo medieval donde sus participantes vienen de todas partes del mundo, el aprender una nueva lengua se convierte en una actividad efectiva y creativa.. los participantes de estos mundos son avatares que aprenden de por vida de forma colaborativa, significativa, constructiva, caótica, humana...conectándose al mundo y atreviéndose a soñar y crear.

Pio will be presenting at SLanguages 2010 today... wowow.. she's so nervous but happy to be able to share her passion for teaching and learning in SL. Well, this is the info on the workshop.. Later she'll tell us about the conf and her experience... ooops almost forget... she'll be also participating in an unconference:


An unconference is a part without set program when conference participants get together, vote for a topic that they wish to discuss with others and then split into discussion groups. At the end of the 30 min discussion everyone meets again and a spokesman of each group relates their findings. Conferences which are entirely based on this concept are called barcamps or educamps.

This session will last 60 minutes

Now back to the workshop.... she's counting with the help of her dear Artstonian friends, to them a warm hug.. without them.. this wouldn't be possible.
