      TEAM CONCEPT
      Our team’s concept for Second Life is a virtual “teacher’s lounge” that provides a space for educators to gather and engage in both formal and informal professional development. Our concept is a place where educators from different geographic areas can come to collaborate, brainstorm, and share ideas. While, also being able to attend more formal continuing education sessions. It can also serve as a virtual social network for educators. The goal would be to have a variety of virtual environments within the Second Life space for educator’s to use and hopefully, provide a way to utilize hands-on tools within Second Life.

      What would our environment look like?
      Our environment would contain many different areas:
      • A lounge, that we could relax and enjoy the area and time learning
      • An outdoor setting to explore the great outdoors as we learn
      • Awild and crazy place so as to bring out the side of us that no one usually sees
      • An area for more formal virtual professional development classes

      How would our environment differ from the one we’re using now?
      The environment that I currently use is a normal classroom setting it tends tonot allow for the imagination to be sparked or the chance for everyone to express themselves in different ways.

      What would be the challenges of using a virtual environment for teaching?
      The challenges would be getting everyone to buy into it. There are some that believe technology is not a good thing and that it corrupts people so they don't want anything to do with it. Others would say there is too much of a learning curve.

      What would be the advantages of using a virtual environment for teaching?
      The advantages would be using your imagination, traveling to the places that you are learning about, being able to meet even if not everyone could be in the same place. Creativity is an important part of learning and the ability to create in a virtual environment is limitless.
