It has been a while since my last post. For those who follow my blog I am sorry. Life has been hecktic. I am in the process of finalizing my Masters capstone, dealing with the whole holiday thing, in the middle of finalizing a purchase agreement on our home, and trying to hold down two jobs. In the middle of this madness I stumbled across something real cool while Christmas shopping. I know this is not something new but it is new to me. I know Lego is in the process of creating a virtual world but they already have a piece of software that might be of great use to educators. If not it is still a neat toy to play with. I am talking about Lego Digital Designer. Lego Digital Designer is a free program that can be downloaded and installed on either a PC or a Mac. It is a 3D modeling program where users can build whatever they want with whatever Lego bricks they need. These models, when finished, can be uploaded to the Lego Factory website and purchased as actual Lego sets. Even more, other consumers can purchase sets of your creations. Visit the Lego Factory website and check it out: http://factory.lego.com/.
