Teaching English in Second Life

Category: Education, How To, Teaching by Stone Culdesac

Nice blog post from a teacher talking about how he is using Second Life to teach his students, and how he made up 7 movies to help them learn how to talk, move around and work in groups in Second Life without disturbing the other groups.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been pretty busy teaching my first English students on a Business English course I have been developing for a virtual school called Languagelab.com

The experience has been pretty daunting with myself and the students having to come to terms with the complexities of the user interface and I have felt at times that my fifteen years of ‘real world’ classroom experience and the subconscious habits and reflexes that I developed over that period have totally deserted me.
