is the class studio setting;

is the sim on the ground level where students have begun building their project. The entire sim is a joint project of all three classes.

It is a funny thing this desire isn't it. 
I agree it isn't necessary to have a "home" or be able to build where
ever you might want but it sure is nice. Allen your organisation of how
to combine the Studio elsewhere and Building site is what I have thought
would work best for students- I figure some studios will be pristine and
others a chaotic mish-mash but having a place, where you don't have to
ask if you 'can', is useful for the creative flow - and I love open
studios as well (so we don't have doors). The accidental inspiration is
too valuable. 
Allen - I would love to come and have a look at how it is going. Are you
happy to share a landmark?  
Liz - synchronously and asynchronously learning and teaching and doing,
for me, are what sl really makes students understand and then start to
engage in a lifelong learning attitude - there is something about
learning to leave things out for others to share... Getting back to a
project to find a note from someone is a really good way to start the
day- the drop function (while open to absue) could be so rewarding -to
have people leave an apple for the teacher or anything else - a flower -
or star - obviously I didn't get enough gold stars as a kid but it would
be nice to see a way of visiting and leaving a trace of the appreciation
that wasn't as big as "best" or "hot" pick - but was 'hey -I enjoyed
visiting -thanks for sharing" 
Cheers

I'd like to add a "me too" to this.

Last year, we didn't have any land to call our own in SL.  Our students
did
some pretty awesome stuff using sandboxes, but they didn't have the
opportunity to share the experience between groups and to learn from
each
other.  And we didn't have anywhere for their builds when they finished
-
apart from our inventories.  This year, we have got an island
specifically
to use for student building and exploring.  It is pretty bare at the
moment,
but things are starting to happen there.  Student groups have their own
areas where they can do more or less what they want (if they need the
permission we'll let them terraform as well as build).  They are looking
at
each others work and learning from each other.  Because they can leave
stuff
out, they can work when they want and do collaborative stuff both
synchronously and asynchronously.  They are enjoying themselves and it
is
fun seeing their ideas grow.

Cheers

I would have to agree with you Esme. When my students are working on a
group
project it is quite difficult for one student to complete their portion
without the other components built by the other students present. Being
able
to take advantage of the asynchronous collaboration capabilities of SL
is
key, especially when students are on different work/class schedules
and/or
time zones.
