It's up and running! Yessssssss, after all the planning and installation of the hardware and software, we now have a working Opensim running our virtual world learning space for students on the support program at Debney Park Secondary College, Victoria. Our Sim comprises 9 islands; 6 for students, 1 collaborative pedagogy island, 1 shared sandbox island and 1 gallery island that also has a plenary space. A range of avatars have been created: a master avatar called Roshi Sensie (Japanese Master), 10 guest avatars, 6 student avatars (which they personalize) and avatars for each support-staff member. The students' first project was "Identity and virtual spaces." Students were required to read an overview of the various definitions of identity, view a range of videos on issues of identity, then create several variations of their avatars, including one extreme version, such as; a new species, racial swap, alien, gigantic, insect, alternate sex, animal or furry. After they have finished creating their avatar identities, they take screen shots of them, participate in a plenary and write a reflection on issues of identity. Finally, they post their screen shots and reflections to their ePortfolios on Wikispaces.

Dear colleagues and friends,

I was just wondering if you had some questionnaire/checklist to obtain data on foreign language teachers' perceptions on the use of Web2.0 tools. I would like to collect data on this topic. The results will be shared here, of course.

Many thanks for your assistance and cooperation in advance.

Hi, Susan - the one thing I can think of is that there are many SL islands owned by folks in other countries who speak other languages. Perhaps you can link up with education groups in your language of choice.

Hi! I am totally new to this but am intrigued to learn how to use this in Foreign Language classes. Any ideas you have will be appreciated, thanks.

Hi, all - are there any chemists around? I'm building a learning module around VSEPR theory (if you don't know what that means, it's OK - smile). All my personal builds are free to anyone who wants them. For more info, here's my blog: and the SLURL to my site on Texas A&M island of 12th Man: .
