Orientation in Second Life

This video is voicing how "second life" is hard and not interesting to learn how to use, so they are going through the steps on how to ake this program more interesting, easier and fun for it's different users.

"second life" is an online program where people can create an avitar and learn how to navigate the program through the program itself.

This video was really hard to watch, it's really boring and really hard to understand! Even after watching this video i'm not positive what "second life" is or what the point is. I have things to do, a full time job and I'm a full time student I do not have time to sit down and create avitar and go through and searh how to use this program!

If I had the time I think I would love and really enjoy creating an avitar and playing around with this program and I KNOW that students would love to be able to do things like this, But it would take lots of time and work to teach the students how to us the program, and I Think there are more important things to be taught in school, such as reading, writing, math skills, thing s that would be the students think a little more. Not just sit in front of the computer trying to learn what is going on with this program.

My very own screencast!

I created a screencast using! My screen cast teached you how to use google docs, What it is use for, how it's easy for saving school papers and work, the differnt ways to upload, download, and edit things to ur google docs.

Check out my screencast!

This was really difficult for me because I'm long winded and i kept running out of time and having to re-do the screencast! AND I'm not really that good at working this tool myself so trying to teach someone else and be on a time limit was really hard for me!

But iin using this in the classroom, the students would be able to something the created on a website and then post it on our class blog and show everyone what they have dreated on the web. I would deffinately need to play with sreenr a little more before I tryed to have my students do one of these!! :)
