Kate gave a fantastic insight into how she engages and demonstrates Second Life. She talked about how she approaches the design; based on outcomes – but also how she engages teachers in the visualisation and design of spaces to suit not just the outcomes, but the style of the teacher and varied needs of students. Most interestingly, she spoke about how she blends Blackboard with Second Life, enrolling avatars as course participants; with associated assessment and learning management. The the session I attended before that; where someone had an atrocious approach to using Active Worlds with schools; where clearly the focus what on the research project, not student outcomes had left me a bit cranky. Kate rounded off the day brilliantly. Have a look at here slidedeck or catch her on Twitter. @kateboardman or visit her blog.
