A Transformative Day!
What a banner day this has been! I met Poem O'Reilly, my classmate in TLVW, at her SL home in EduNation. Poem told me that EduNation belongs to Randall Sadler, a professor with the University of Illinois.
Here's the part I find amazing... Poem is from Uruguay and teaching grad students. I meet up with her in Second Life and find out about her work with students and I tell her about mine. Earlier this week, I met up with OliveTree (a classmate from Dubai) and we did a quest together in World of Warcraft. In addition to the engagement of this unique teaching/learning tool, I realize that it's not just the "virtual world" concept that's so intriguing; it's the fact that we can meet anyone from anywhere there, and learn from them as well. I am broadened by the experience and look forward to learning more!
