Greetings! This list is for educators interested in or currently using Second Life, and we will be using it to send out information we feel is of interest to educators and academics. This list is also an opportunity for all of you to communicate with each other, to find new colleagues and to share your experiences using Second Life for education. Please feel free to send email to the list if you'd like to connect with other people.
Since you're just joining the group, please send a brief email to the list introducing yourself, describing your interests and what you're working on in Second Life. We'd all love to hear about it!
There's a Group in Second Life called 'Real Life Education in Second Life' which is also comprised of people who are interested in the educational possibilities of Second Life. If you'd like to keep in touch with other educators inworld, please feel free to join. The group is open to everyone, and it's another great way to find colleagues and collaborators to help you with your education work in Second Life.
Be sure to check out Linden Lab's Learning Inworld Blog. Learning Inworld offers stories and information we think will be helpful to educators working in Second Life.
If you're a Researcher, you might also like to subscribe to the Second Life Researchers List. That list is focused specifically on research issues in Second Life, and is maintained by Sarah 'Intellagirl' Robbins.
If you'd like to connect with other Educators and Academics and actually meet with them in Second Life, try attending the Virtual Worlds Education Roundtable (VWER) events. They happen every Tuesday, and you can learn all about VWER on their Facebook page.
We also have some other Linden Lab mailing lists that you might be interested in joining. Please see the Educators Working with Teens Mailing List, the Healthcare Support and Education Mailing List, the Non-Profits Mailing List, the Government Mailing List and the Corporate Use Mailing List.
If you have any additional questions about this SLED mailing list or questions about Linden Lab's work with educators, please email me - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lastly, if you have a Support Issue be sure to check out our excellent Support Portal. From that page you can submit a ticket to our Support Staff as well as explore our useful Knowledge Base. We have Support Staff who focus specifically on helping educators, and we'll be sure to answer your questions as quickly as possible.
