there are some things you can do in SL that are difficult, impracticable or too expensive to do in RL, such as changing appearance quickly, which can make it more interesting to talk about appearance and is not limited to what the learners are wearing in class. Instead of looking at pictures of let’s say the Seven World Wonders, learners and the teacher can visit them together, climb up the pyramids or walk into a tomb to discover its secrets, visit different countries, museums, galleries, shops, take snapshots or buy stuff and bring them back to class to talk about them. Instead of imagining being in a room looking at a picture, learners can walk into and around a room, interact with the objects, for example: sit on a couch, watch a film, grab a cup of coffee, move the furniture, redecorate the house, and describe what they are doing. You can also drag all kinds of “realia” out of your pocket (inventory) whenever you need something–even whole planes, cars and houses or unusual objects

List for educators interested in or currently using Second Life. This list is also an opportunity for all of you to communicate with each other, to find new colleagues and to share your experiences using Second Life for education. Please feel free to send email to the list if you'd like to connect with other people.
Since you're just joining the group, please send a brief email to the list introducing yourself, describing your interests and what you're working on in Second Life. We'd all love to hear about it!
There's a Group in Second Life called 'Real Life Education in Second Life' which is also comprised of people who are interested in the educational possibilities of Second Life. If you'd like to keep in touch with other educators inworld, please feel free to join. The group is open to everyone, and it's another great way to find colleagues and collaborators to help you with your education work in Second Life.

Welcome to the EduNation Islands homepage.
All of the three EduNation islands are focused on the potential for Virtual Worlds (VWs) to enhance the language learning process and is maintained by a community of educators who contribute towards paying for the rent of the islands in Second Life.
The four owners Gavin Dudeney, Randall Sadler, Heike Philp and Paul East (see contact information) dedicate their time and resources to provide this virtual space in a not-for-profit manner.

There comes a time when you have to admit you were wrong, or perhaps misguided, or simply that you were a little bit ‘out of time’, or perhaps – better said – that somebody let you down and maybe it wasn’t your fault.
