I have been feverishly getting ready for next week's TIES conference. Cara Hagen and I are presenting a workshop Sunday, December 9th and a session on Tuesday, December 11th on Virtual Worlds titled, "Online Virtual Environments in Education." In this session we will explore virtual worlds such as Second Life and Active Worlds and their potential for professional development and integration in the classroom. I have prepared a wiki for this session at http://ties2007vles.pbwiki.com/. I invite anyone interested in virtual worlds and education to edit this wiki.
Information on these and other sessions offered at TIES 2007 can be found at https://wiki.ties.k12.mn.us/Conference+2007.
