RE: Calling all avatars to participate in International MEXTESOL Conference in Leon: PLNs
Dear PLN and Dear Avatar,
On Saturday, October 18, at 2:15PM SLT (4:15PM Mexico City/CST), I will be demonstrating Second Life for a TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) International conference in Mexico.
There will only be about 15 minutes of participation to share what your PLN (Personal Learning Network) means to you and how Second Life aids you in your PLN and being a 21 century teacher. You can even throw in a little poetry if you life to break things up a bit.
So, if you have been looking for that small opportunity to jump into an SL session, please join us in showcasing the power and importance of PLNs. Educators in Mexico really need some insights and sharing in this area.
Don't have a Second Life avatar yet? This is a good time to start and begin networking with other avatars attending the session. Go to http://secondlife.com
to set up your avatar and download the SL program to your PC or Mac. It is really fun and educational. See you in-world!
When: Saturday, October 18, 2008
Time: 2:15PM SLT (thats 4:15PM Mexico City time/CST).
SLURL: META Training Facility, Virtlantis Island

Thanks so much

P.S. I have been assured that I will have an Internet ready salon at the event. In case something goes wrong and Salty is not present .. please just go ahead and take turns answering the focus questions for the benefit of the other avatars present. Hopefully I will be there to kick things off ....
