Event Description

4th SLanguages 2010
15-16 October 2010

A quick guide to the programme: http://tinyurl.com/2fyjj4d. More detail to follow soon!!

Here is the detailed programme containing session descriptions and bios for presenters.

SLanguages 2010 is a 24h virtual conference on language teaching and learning in Second Life. It runs from 10:00 SL/ 5pm GMT October 15th to 10:00 SL/ 5pm GMT October 16th and we look forward to seeing you there. The timetable will be available soon. Wherever possible we have aimed to repeat sessions so that you will get more than one chance to see each presentation. We hope you will also come along to the group discussions and social events and take some time to visit the tools exhibition in the Sandbox.

There are three main venues for the conference and depending on the sessions, other venues will be visited. Landmarks will be provided in the conference guide and on the conference website www.slanguages.net:

- EduNation I, Amphitheatre
EduNation II, Amphitheatre
- AVALON Learning Island

The conference is free of charge.

To register, please touch the conference poster in the main information area in the sandbox on EduNation II and join the 'SLanguages Annual Symposium' group.

I arrived here I think from a Tweet from EveWeb which said "Read The Avealmec Daily Oct 11 ▸ Today's top stories are contributed by @kalinagoenglish @thornburyscott and @VanceS ▸ http://t.co/6cD5PaS". I think my 'top story' was a mention of this conference in a tweet about Sedat Akayoglu repeating a summary of his research here :-)

I will pop in if I can find bandwidth where I am, though I will be engaged much of the weekend in a certain underwater activity in RL.
