Many researchers and instructors (including myself) have been exploring how social networking technology can be successfully integrated into the classroom to enhance students’ experiences. While I am still undecided on the viability and usefulness of education in realms like second life, I am interested in their possibilities. I tend to be worried that sometimes we jump into technology because it is the new cool thing and not necessarily because it is the best thing. A recent article I read talked about a new island being formed in Second Life to help instructors learn to use the new world in their classrooms. I applaud this university for taking charge of the many instructors teaching in Second Life and helping to offer best tips. I can’t wait to navigate my avatar there to explore what they have to say.
