[21:02] Pennae DeCuir: Hi Andrew!!!
[21:02] Outback Outlander: It's always interesting to ask how teachers cope with these things... as though education is about the teachers...

[21:02] jokay Wollongong: drumming, using an object together
[21:02] Henny Zimer: go to jokaydia and ask lots of questions...
[21:02] Sapphire Ceawlin: Pandora says start with a web intro - then take them in world take them high and get them to throw themselves off - whren the avatar does not break they are good to go
[21:02] Sapphire Ceawlin: looking at Quest Atlantis now

[21:03] Wonko Whizenhunt: many cannot see past the "pretty"and the "cutesy"to the core of what is possible
[21:03] Sapphire Ceawlin: i pick jo lolz
[21:03] jokay Wollongong: hehe.. i cant tap dance.. but i can skip.. lolz
[21:03] jokay Wollongong: Maybe henny can tell us alittle about what he does in Quest while real life does that?
[21:03] jokay Wollongong: ;)
[21:03] Pennae DeCuir: and when i saw the sistine chapel i was impressed... but the SLanguages conference was the kicker (i did a poster presentation!)
[21:03] Wonko Whizenhunt: some are uncomfortable that their students are more comfortable with the tools than they are
[21:03] jokay Wollongong: Who else inworld is using quest?
[21:03] samanda Undercroft is Offline

[21:04] Ackygirl Trilling: wonko... defintely... but then again we learn soooo much through what our students do and share :)
[21:04] Pennae DeCuir: i've had students who are really, really good at soccer. i'm no good at sport. but i don't stop them playing (at the appropriate time)
[21:04] Tsmith Thursday: I am in QA now also Bron
[21:04] jokay Wollongong: hehe... slammed.. i need to level to 79 tonight.. needs help!.. lolz
[21:04] Ute Frenburg: @Wonko....totally agree...the teachers feel out of control as the students know more and can adapt quicker
[21:04] Outback Outlander: this has been fun, but I need to go get ready to get on a plane to Melbourne :-) See you all soon.
[21:04] Pennae DeCuir: ....and i also find those soccer kids a mentor (coach)!

[21:05] Wonko Whizenhunt: whether it is rational or not
[21:05] slammed Aabye: I can see why this would seem so scary to teachers
[21:05] Tempest: building relationships is eally important in virtual world its another corner of the PLN
[21:05] Pennae DeCuir: I agree with Kerry tho - it has to be purposeful
[21:05] jokay Wollongong: I was there!!.. and i haz a windmill to show you.. lolz
[21:05] Henny Zimer nods at what tempest said...
[21:05] Pennae DeCuir: Wandering around is realllllly boring
[21:05] slammed Aabye: @Pennae all learning must be purposeful
[21:06] slammed Aabye: just that you don't get a text-book for SL - you have to use your brain and be inventive
[21:06] jokay Wollongong: Agree Pennae.. i think its really key to make sure people have good early experiences.. the ghost town effect is alienating
[21:06] slammed Aabye: you can FAKE virtual worlds and games - if youre a n00b, youre a n00b
[21:06] Henny Zimer thinks you need to ask lots and lots of questions...
[21:06] Wonko Whizenhunt: time to play is necessary - being comfortable to do that is vital
[21:06] Pennae DeCuir: as long as you're not a luser? ;)
[21:06] slammed Aabye: agrees with Henny
[21:06] jokay Wollongong: agreed henny.. and be brave about trying things and taking risks
[21:07] Mic: where teachers have used this with class what sort of reaction have you got from parents?
[21:07] slammed Aabye: teachers are novices for a short time and experts for a long time - going back to being a novice is an ego-thing
[21:07] jokay Wollongong: Henny.. what has the response been from your kids/parents re: QA?
[21:07] Barbara Maven: Mic, you have to remember a lot of us ARE parents and we see how bored our kids are with the current system
[21:07] Henny Zimer: very positive...especially from the kids...
[21:07] Outback Outlander is Offline
[21:08] Barbara Maven: I'd be thrilled to see my son engaged and learning in an environment he's comfortable/familiar with and in many ways mastered
[21:08] Henny Zimer: parents think it is cool...but not as cool as the kids...
[21:08] Rob Merchi: my teenage son thinks its cool his mum games ... ;)
[21:08] jokay Wollongong: how did you manage parental approvals henny.. that's a biggy for k-7 teachers especially
[21:08] Henny Zimer: the kids go nuts...
[21:08] Tsmith Thursday: agree Henny - approvals weer easy
[21:08] Henny Zimer: they are exploring...
[21:08] Ute Frenburg: In the US kids are bored and crammed in a box not thinking only regurgitating
[21:08] Henny Zimer: don't realize that they are learning
[21:09] Tsmith Thursday: except when I ask them to revise a quest
[21:09] Sapphire Ceawlin: logging off
