Active learning 2.0?

Well, it’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been busy with company and projects keep popping up. I hope to report more on the projects a little later.

I had a neat experience in Second Life the other day. I was attending a real world contest that was being simultaneously broadcast in SL. Unfortunately, I had to leave it for a moment but when I returned, I discovered that while the conference was proceeding, a second discussion on open access had arisen among those present (including some who were both at the rl conference and the sl environment). Active learning and discussion were taking place in sl rather than the conference! It was a really neat experience and highlighted some interesting potential for sl. Whether everyone could handle the two discussions at the same time is an entirely different question.

Well, I am behind in my learning 2.0 activities and hope to catch up over the weekend, so I may have more to share on that front later.
