Int.Schs.Island

15 Feb 2013 i.s.i. Homestead Transferred

On the 15th February 2013 the final [Homestead] Int.Schools Island SIM in Second Life was transferred to a new owner. R.I.P. International Schools Island in Second Life ... many thanks for all of the learning opportunities, experiences and new friends.
The new Homestead name is "Haven" the new owner is again Trish Dean [avi Tori Landau] [avi manager Teri Leitner]

R.I.P. i.s.i.
 









One of the reasons for giving up the SIMS was the cost ... just prohibitively high when the education 50% discount was removed. Ironic update is that I received an email from Linden Labs dated 12th March 2013
I quote
"We were sorry to see you go, and we’d love to see your institution return to Second Life. If you return, we’d like to offer your institution a 50% discount on land maintenance fees. Once you renew your account, you’ll pay just $1,770 per full private island for one year, or $3,540 for two years."

That's Life :-)

Main Int.Schs.Island SIM transferred

The original, main, SIM which started International Schools Island in Second Life in 2007 has changed ownership and changed its name.

You can find more details at http://shambles.net/secondlife/

Shamblesguru from the new home over looking the old. This was the result of Linden Labs removing the educational discount on their SIMS in Second Life in 2010 ... and US$3,600 is just too much to pay for a year rental.

The main i.s.i. SIM in Second Life transferred ownership on 14 September 2012 to Tori Landau and was renamed "Moonstone". The SIM will be redeveloped differently under this new ownership.

I (Shamblesguru) still owns and lives on the tropical SIM next to Moonstone ... called "International Schools Island 3" (isi3)
SLURL: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/International%20Schools%203/233/26/23


Many of the free teaching/learning objects that used to be on i.s.i can be found on isi3 scattered around the beaches ... organised just as 'Steptoe & Son' would have done.


One door closes and another opens.

Hello Chris!

I've become a new member not too long ago and am very excited about this site. Needless to say as a new member I know no one. May I kindly invite you as a guest to my site (http://ntoond2.ning.com/). Any suggestions or comments you may have on how best to navigate the 2.0 world would be most appreicated.

Also, would you care to share any sayings which are particular to your country on my site? For example, in the US one can say "Waste not, want not" or "Birds of a feather flock together", "A stitch in time saves nine"... and so on.

I'd be most grateful.
Thanks and hope to hear from you.

Aaron
