Hi Sadie, er Risa!

I was a candidate for a tenure track job in EdTech there at NAU a few years
back -- very nice place to be it seems. Best of luck getting on there!

The social construction of reality in SL is a VERY interesting topic - one
that we share. I'm interested in how the avatar can become a projection of
the learner and the inventory a portfolio of work that the student can use
to demonstrate competencies in various areas (standards, etc.).

Welcome to the SLED!

"The architecture of our future is not only unfinished; the scaffolding has
hardly gone up. "  ~ George Lamming

"All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what
their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day
toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose."  ~ Brian Tracy
