Schome Park closure
Phase 3 of the Schome Park Programme ended on 31 May 2008 - we are currently busy analysing data and writing up.
The Schome team entering the Handheld Learning Conference ‘Learners Y Factor’ competition have been invited to make a presentation of their work and learning experiences in London at the Handheld Learning Festival on Monday 13th October. Well done everyone!
Our proposal to launch a real-life satellite to measure and record Earthshine was named as one of the finalists in the UKSC. Our final proposal now must be submitted by the end of August. The team are busy working on finishing the proposal.
Did you participate in the creation of MySchome, or did you take part in any of the History sessions? If so, why not get involved in the write up of reports coving both topics? For more information see the forum board "Reflection and forward planning."
You can download a copy of the MySchome magazine either as a pdf file (17Mb) or as a zip file (11Mb). This edition includes items on Archaeology, Schome in Space, Poetry, Sailing in SP, Trixxie's tips, Character design and much more ... (Mars is to be congratulated on pulling together a fantastic first edition - nice one Mars)
As the Schome community has grown and developed over the past year I have enjoyed having the opportunity to work with new folk. I feel it is time to acknowledge the countless hours put in by our dedicated staff team, often invisibly. Not sure how to do this, but I have made a start by writing a mini, reflective case study about Amba's role so far. (Hmm - I wonder if I should have done it as a blog entry instead?)
Schome Park (made up of SP Alpha and Beta) is the Schome island on the Teen Grid of Second Life. Student residents are known as Schomers and the Staff as SParkers.
