In my last post, I asked the faculty and staff if they had created a technology goal that they wanted to learn. Wanting to be a good role model, I decided that I had to set a technology resolution also.
My resolution is to give Second Life a second chance. 18 months ago, I dipped my toes into Second Life, but at that time, I didn’t see the educational implications. I just didn’t get it.
The last time I had this experience is with Twitter. I had created an account and began to play with it, but just didn’t get it. It wasn’t until I expanded my network at NECC 2007 in Atlanta and the next few months after that I truly understood the impact and potential of Twitter.
So, over the next six weeks, I will try to visit Second Life two to three times a week, so that hopefully, I will begin to make it a habit. I am hoping this time, I will be able to connect with the mentors who will allow me to discover the potential that Second Life promises.
I will keep an open mind.
