Wednesday, December 3rd

Good morning,
I went to a workshop on Second Life about two years ago and created an avatar, but I haven't been a Second Lifer other than a few visits, so it's great to join this group. Here is my progress so far.
I made my way down half of the links in the handbook. They're very helpful. Then I decided to complete our assignment and visited ISTE. When I arrived there were a docent and someone learning about ISTE. I felt strange arriving in the middle of a conversation and wasn't sure how to introduce myself, so I went off on my own. I could see that it would be good to go back since it's possible to set up a tour. I don't have a lot of time, so it may be a while. However, I've bookmarked the site for later.
I hope we can set up a time to meet. It's awkward just entering on my own.

Mary Jane,

You are the second person to talk about lonliness in SL and that can be a problem unless one makes appointments.

I'lll get to work on setting up somethiong this evening.

Gopod that you are getting around. You'll find there many suggestions tucked away in the notes.

Mary Jane,
What and where is ISTE?

Maryanne - no-one has answered your question ISTE means something like the International Society for the support of Technology in Education.
They have an excellent site in SL, pretty, too, very American and run many useful courses - like the one tomorrow on basic building. I tell you what. I'll find a definite reference in the next comment.

Hi Maryanne,
Dennis is right. It is the International Society for Technology in Education, and it is on the list of sites that Dennis posted on the front page in the side bar on the right.
You can visit it if you click on his link.
Sorry it took me so long to answer.
