Let me tell you that I referred your project to Vance Stevens (Webheads in Action) and he mentioned it in a paper that has just been published. Check it out at:

Warm regards from Brazil,

PS - I am starting to enjoy SL but still find it very very time consuming and heavy to load. I managed to get dressed though without spending a cent, attended some conferences online (very much like in RL unfortunately) and learnt some tips and tricks. I will try to find you next time I log in.

Wishing you all a wonderful year and lots of creativity and imagination for the Schome Project. My school year starts early February and I was wondering whether not to involve some of my students in the SL Teen Grid.

Warm regards from Brazil,

I spent some time without visiting the forum! And surprise! Lots of posts of yours on the wiki and new people on the forum! It took me some time to read everyone and get the picture of what is going on. I was reading your wiki I came across a lot of references you make that I do not understand because I do not live where you do ... so some words are not familiar.

Could you explain better what these words or expressions mean or give me a link or photo to illustrate it?
I hope you do not mind.

Thanks and looking forward to your everyday adventures.
PS - I wish I had a PDA. Have you discovered how it works and what you can do with it?

Hi Cheri,
If you are interested in blogging you may want to have a look at a project I am co-running for EFL/ESL students called Dekita (, through which we encourage personal web-publishing and the use of social tools.

Hi Ana,
Yes, I would definitely be interested in having some references.
I am teaching EFL at secondary school and am now co-running a web-publishing project, which is very much in line with what you mention here.

Hi Kieron,
Thanks for the explanation. A friend of mine in New Zealand, Annette Stock, also works with language disabilities. She has been doing some very interesting work using rap.
YOu may be interested in exchanging ideas. Here is her site:

However, I still prefer blog for personal posts as they are dated and you can build your porfolio and identity online. Wikis are mostly used for collaborative work, when you want to work on the same page as a colleague of yours, while blogs are more personal writing like yours.

Have a go at Blogger ( or Wordpress ( Both are very user-friendly and easy to update. You can also choose the template (the looks of it) you want to use so it fits your personality or mood.

How many students are there in Schome?
Are we allowed to bring in some to share their vision or ideas?

Hi Mark,
Nice to meet you. I have always wanted to continue my studies. Could you tell me more about the OU and how it has worked for you?
I did 6 months training as a clown and enjoyed immensely wearing a red nose :-)

Hi Kieron,
I share the same interests (better future educational environments) but confess I do not know much about morphing software or Makaton, rebus, etc. What is it exactly and how have you been using it?

Hi Kerry,
I share your views of a holistic approach to education and would be very much interested in brainstorming more about imaginative thinking and dancing!

Hi Gill,
Now that is a wonderful way to use mobiles. On a field trip! Pity it was raining.
I have a friend who is very much interested in creating different scenarios for using mobile phones. I am sure he will be very interested in your experience. Check out MobilED and do get in contact with Teemu.

Hi Peter,
Not much information about you on the profile page and I do not feel like logging into Second Life to find out about Schomer (I must admit I am a bit lazy). What are your interests and what do you enjoy doing when you are not on your project or near the computer?

Hi Diane,
Nice to meet you and I fully understand your concern about biscuits. They just destroy your waistline, especially if you eat one after the other while sitting at the computer. The keyboard gets full of crumbs as well and it is difficult to
What kind of work have you been developing and what interests you most?

Hi Ana,
This seems to be a very exciting project and I would be very interested in learning more from you about how to develop everyday creativity.
