  • What is Second Life?
    • “… an Internet-based virtual world … developed by Linden Lab … users, called " Residents ", interact with each other through … avatars … a social network … Residents can explore, meet other Residents, participate in individual and group activities , create and trade items and services ...” Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_life
  • What is Second Life?
    • Second Life is:
      • An environment, a platform, a blank slate
      • Two ‘grids’: one for Teens, one for Adults
      • 100% user directed and controlled
      • Best experienced with a modern, powerful PC
      • Economically linked to the real world (Linden $)
      • One of many virtual worlds (For a full list, see: http://tinyurl.com/296lcm )
      • Highly social
      • Global
      • Free
  • What is Second Life?
    • Second Life is NOT:
      • A “game”
      • A finished, complete, ready-to-use “thing”
      • Crowded
      • 100% ‘safe’ (like the web, there are ‘bad places’) [“Teen Grid” projects ARE 100% safe!]
      • Passive
      • Easy to use for people with poor keyboarding skills!
  • What is Second Life?
    • Two “Grids”
      • Main (Adult) 18+
        • Corporations, Non-Profits, Institutions of Higher Ed
        • Entertainment Industry
        • Politicians
        • Regular people (including educators!)
      • Teen (13-17)
        • Teen-only areas (open to all teens)
        • Private estates (schools)
        • Clearance process: http://tslclear.blogspot.com/
