  2. 2. You can move around in virtual spaces in a number of ways Walk using your arrows or click Move on the screen bottom & choose other ways to navigate Be sure to practice walking, flying, and running – it is easy for kids but harder for adults – here’s a 1 min animation Move gives you access to many ways to get around – run, walk, or fly
  3. 3. You can sit on a number of objects Right click a chair > click Sit Here
  4. 4. You can zoom your camera & take / send Snapshots Click Alt on your keyboard > click on your avatar (the icon turns to a magnifying glass) > use the arrows on your keyboard to move around; use your mouse scroll-wheel to zoom in/out . Press ESC if you get stuck, then use this over. Practice – you will need to zoom in on other avatars when they are speaking. Here’s a link to a 1 min. animation on viewing. In the next slide, you will see me taking a picture.

  8. 8. Testing your own speaking You can see the green waves; be sure you are zoomed out far enough to be able to see them we you take a picture. And, yes, even avatars can get caught with their eyes closed for a picture.
