Second Life - Have a look (Fly) around!


For a few years now I have been entering Second Life and exploring a completely new world to the one I had become accustomed too. It has been quite easy to do, as ALL of my exploration has been from the comfort of my home and my laptop. I have visited museums, art galleries, Universities, various educational locations and some simply amazing historical sites.

As an educator, my favourite, regular destination has been the International School's IslandThe island was set up by @shamblesguru and is designed to support mainly k-12 educators with their ongoing professional development challenges. One of the the most popular areas on the island is the three Towers -  Curriculum, Information, Technology. In these towers is a growing index of education places in Second Life and probably the most comprehensive collection of education links in Second Life itself [1. International Schools Island]. As well as finding huge amounts of useful information to enhance my CPD, I have attended seminars in the Mountain top retreat and engaged in discussions with other educators.


Second Life for Education is huge and there are numerous opportunities to use it in your educational life. I would suggest going and and having a look at some of the resources i have linked to above. The following will give you a few more ideas... Enjoy your journey :)

Top tips to increase your productivity through your study room

We’re stuck at home with limited access to many public spaces outdoors, including libraries, co-working spaces and educational institutions. These are just some examples of study areas you may utilise when you need a change in scenery to keep yourself engaged whilst you’re studying. Now, we’re being forced within the four walls of our home which means creating a workspace or room has never been more important. The learning environment that students work in can have a major impact on…See More
