Next Wednesday they will have a newbie event in SL. They bring in various speakers to present including Steve Dembo (teach42). They had a Halloween party last year. They have hosted 65 formal events but that does not include the many informal events in the DEN. Events are posted in SL, they have a Google group.
2007- 56 events with 566 participants
Communication anytime/anywhere- 24 hour professional learning
Create a visual of your network- post them for understanding
Second Life has the possibility to help students who are homebound but presenter said that she personally does not believe SL is ready for students.
Book: A Beginners Guide to Second Life- can only order online; Second Life for Dummies also very good
Looking for Wednesday workshop presenters- think about volunteering
