A Virtual World Experience

Many folks don’t know that in another (virtual) life, my name is Sebastién. Tonight I (I mean, Sebastién), will be speaking on VSTE Island in Second Life, about students using Scratch – a free platform for creating, designing, and problem solving.

This free event begins at 8 PM EDT by following the link above. If you’ve never experienced the virtual world SecondLife, you’ll first need to download the application and select an avatar.

The Virginia Society for Technology in Education maintains an “island” for professional development in this virtual world. Come join us! If you can’t, and your school isn’t using Scratch, check out all the free resources available online for this introduction to programming tool from MIT.
