I’ll be in Edinburgh when his online session is on, but I know Mike will be great (he always is!)- so I just have to share the following post from Mike McKay (ProfessorMike Merryman if you know him from SL):
**Please Twit, share, post, or 1+ the following to help me promote virtual world language learning. Thank you so much! On with the show!**
I will be presenting at a fairly major international online conference next week and thought I would pass on this information to you. Many of you are aware I have been researching ways to use virtual worlds like Second Life for language learning. In the past few years I have grown my community, Cypris Chat (http://cyprischat.org), to over 500 active members from more than 40 countries. The conference I will be presenting at is focused on global awareness and education. I think it will be very exciting to show how a community like Cypris Chat has brought the world together with one main goal in mind, to learn or teach English. I hope this presentation will help promote this fantastic medium for educating students.
WHEN: Tuesday, November 15th from 10:00pm to 11:00pm JST – 1:00pm – 2:00pm GMT
