11:53 guest-293: Is second life going to be streaming here at the live Studio?
11:53 Jeff: Yes it is
11:54 Marijana: LOL jeff
11:54 Marijana: :) Cool, and you are flying
11:54 guest-603: I can't even put on my shoes let alone change my entire look! You look wonderful.
11:56 Marijana: LOve your look H eike! :)
11:57 guest-12: SL stream is awesome
11:59 Marijana: SL looks very interesting :)
12:09 Vance: This is a nice place to be :-)
12:09 Vance: I'll be back, need to start my VPN
12:12 Vance: Well said Jeff
12:12 Vance: SL is relaunching
12:13 Vance: Webhead Link is me btw
12:15 Vance: Webhead has made it over to SL
12:24 guest-603: Overall, I see a high degree of interaction which is always a good opportunity for learners to engage in meaningful discussion. The vehicle of SL as a ESL course is amazing.
12:25 guest-603: Are most of these projects in SL, the machinas, collaborative projects?
12:26 guest-603: I guess the better question is, are any of these projects completed by individuals without the help of a coworker?
12:27 Jeff: will forward both questions to Heike
12:29 guest-603: So is a machina project a problem-based learning project?
12:29 Vance: I was going to relay them, so I'm watching here as well
12:29 Vance: so if anyone has questions ...
12:39 guest-603: It is incredibly creative idea of using SL in this way. I am not schooled in SL, but in the scenario you just described, the hotel check-in, given the links and easy access to Youtube, you've suggested a very good reason to enter SL.
12:40 Vance: Which EVO sessions are you taking Jenny?
12:40 guest-603: Multilit.
12:40 Vance: only?
12:41 Vance: (it's probably enough :-)
12:41 guest-603: I am in Change11 too. And a real-time job too.... ;-)
12:41 Vance: me too :-)
12:44 guest-603: What I am most impressed with SL and ESL potential is the increased interaction for students to engage in novel language use. If the practice session is the viewing the machina, then the reinactment is a second level, and visiting in-world to interact with those who watched the video too is wonderful.
12:44 guest-603: Meaningful output....
12:45 guest-293: What is mobile learning?
12:46 Vance: using apps for language learning on a smart phone
12:47 Vance: I wonder if you can do SL on a smartphone yet
12:47 Vance: Minecraft seems to be an interesting game for education
12:55 Vance: you heard it here first !
13:02 Vance: thanks I was trying to get that link from my SL computer to my stream computer
13:05 lughdanann: Hi Vance. Deborah K here from Florida. Are you involved with U of W school linked above?
13:05 Vance: Hi Deborah, Heiki is taking a course there, she was just talking about it
13:06 Vance: it's being recorded
13:06 Vance: do you have any questions? We can relay them?
13:08 lughdanann: Oh, I see. Hi Heiki. Re-Q's-no, not really. I'm new with all of this and am exploring. I was trying to navigate in SL this am and find Webheads, etc. bu I've got a bit to learn yet.
13:08 Vance: I'm moderating the Multiliteracies course and the whole first week is dedicated to orienting
13:10 lughdanann: I had started an EDuc Technology program about ten yrs ago, but found it to be mostly behavioristic instructional design and I ahted it. When you put the link up to U of Wash, I thought wondered what their course was like. Frankly, though, I'm getting more out of this EVO conference, and I expect, little by little it'll all come together--unless it changes:)
13:10 Vance: I've been enjoying it coming together for years now
13:13 Peggy: http://www.slbloodlines.com/
