Teacher Development: observing and learning from teachers in SL.

To this end, I have created a work in progress of an adapted RL lesson observation sheet, trying to make it more SL user-friendly. I would greatly welcome feedback on this rough doc (please…See More

Where are you moving from?  I have also taken a bit of a break from SL and was focusing on Opensim for awhile.  I took a class on using SL for teaching and it was very interesting.  I am going to be moving to Hangzhou, China in a few weeks but I will be teaching face to face small groups. However,  I am still interested in language teaching in virtual environments (VI).  Will you be using VI for teaching this year?

Hi Martin, I have no idea what you do here... I heard a program in the ABC in Sydney and I became a member to learn... Can anyone guide me a bit here?

Hi Martin,

Nice to see a fellow MA classmate here. I don't know about you but, because of huge piles of unread PDFs mounting up, I haven't had a chance to look around this site yet, though I am looking forward to it. Have you?
