Hello Rich,
Thanks for the welcome (although it is now 2 months later :)!

Hello Rich, I am Anne Mirtschin, a secondary IT teacher from Australia. I also work one day per week for Innovations and Next Practise division of the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. I have been accepted into a trial project based on the educational use of virtual worlds. This includes Quest Atlantis and Reaction Grid. However, my state Department of Education whom I am working with, is concerned about the avatar nudity issue and at this stage will not allow students in, until the issue is resolved.I have been told that you have worked on some coding that may resolve this issue. I have asked to make you my colleague but since I have done that I cannot msg you. My email is mirtschin@gmail.com and I would love to ask you more questions, if that is possible, please. We used Hippo Viewer 0.6.3 which did not allow avatars to remove underwear but this is not working. Thanks for any advice or help.

Hi Rich,

Thanks for commenting on my dissertation question. You had some great ideas. I also found your page interesting. Are you on twitter? http://twitter.com/hcrompton

Have been looking at your work on Open Sim as I want to set up such a VLE for my Primary school, with the view to connecting with other classrooms and learning without walls. I would be grateful for some advice. Thanks.

Just saw a link for the Immersive Ed. Day. Do you plan to stream any of the conference for those who can't make it?

Hi Rich. I was wondering if your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some other educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!

Thanks for your reply,
I am trying to set up an OpenSim Grid for my high school students. Tall order for an art teacher. Right now I have a University computer science student configuring Opensim as a stand alone and have a local company willing to house the server inside their network so I dont have to worry about firewalls etc.
I followed some of your links and wondered if Cobalt (squeek) is a better application for students to create and build. You can tell I'm over my head with programming but I think there is real value for my students so will continue to stumble on.

Hi Rich,

Great page Rich. With your interest in education technology I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's we based power point presenation platform. The virtual world could prove to be an amazing new step in online education.

Hello! Thanks for the greetings. Its cool to see you work at Greenbush. My hometown school district went there a lot especially my mom. She is the school nurse. I like the second life previews on your page. Don't know much about it but want to explore when I get the time.

Awesome page Rich,
Lots to explore here...G

I actually heard them talking about you all on the EdTechWeekly podcast a few weeks ago. I wondered if it was "our" Greenbush! Well done, and I look forward to visiting you all in SL.

I didn't know Greenbush had an island in SecondLife! SWEET, I'll have to come visit as I'm an SEK girl.

Rich, do you know about the Robert Wood Johnson's "Games for Health" grant? I was thinking it might be fun to develop an interactive game for health using EduSim. Here is the link to the grant application information:

Rich,

At this point, we have not yet recieved any Smart Boards yet. I, personally have had experience with this great tool and agree with you on the variety of things that can be done using one in the classroom. We currently have funding to put these in 2/3 of the science classrooms in the school. (No time frame has been given yet.)

Awesome Stuff Rich!
I am a Technology Integration Specialist in Maize, Kansas and we currently utilize the IDL sessions through Greenbush. We have decided to go with Promethean as our IWB, and currently have 12 in our building. We would love to find out more information about your projects. Thanks for sharing.

Great stuff Rich!

I'm very impressed with your Smartboard integration. I can't wait until we have widespread implementation of this technology within Government schools in Australia. One of these boards used collaboratively would be far more beneficial to the students than the 2-3 desktop PCs that we currently have available. Even though the cost of this technology has decreased quite dramatically, I won't hold my breath!

Your work with Edusim is wonderful and I wish you all the best for the future.

Hey, looks like fun! I'll check it out. Thanks for the invite!

Hi Rich, how are you? Have you heard of YouFig.com? It's a useful site for collaboration between students and between teacher & class. It's invitation only and I still have a few invites left. Let me know if you'd like one. Looking forward to seeing you around here.

Thanks for the friend invite! I am a fellow Kansan, Rock Chalk. N.
