so nice to be here
« on: January 16, 2008, 02:05:04 PM »
Hi,
This is Yati SParker. It's really good to be here. I am especially interested in Virtual Learning Communities 8), Virtual Identities ::), and Multimodal Discourse of Computer Mediated Communication. It would be nice to share ideas with people here and learn from each other.
Thanks.

Hi Yati,
Have you been involved in Second Life or other environments with avatars before - or have you mainly looked at text-based virtual communities?

Oh well. :P

On a more serious note, I reckon that the statement "Welcome to school" is going to become more accurate as time goes on - the number of school-based projects here, logging in primarily from school, under teacher supervision, would appear to ruin the "not school" part.

So you end up with "not home - school(ome?) - the education system for the information age."
Meep.

I'm sorry but that's wrong. Informal lessons that you can choose to turn up to or not seems a whole lot better than what we have at my school ;)

I agree - but I strongly get the feeling that a school class that sets homework and whose participants are only going to log during school hours is somewhat less optional than what there is here now.
