 I'm so proud of this. ISTE SIGVE has continued producing "nearly monthly" "Connected Educator" Google Hangouts to share resources and new developments in virtual worlds ever since the US Department of Education's Connected Educator Month back in August 2012. I am proud to say that I have, really, nothing to do with this.

Why in the world(s) do I say that?

Because back in 2009, when we founded ISTE's "Special Interest Group (SIG) for Virtual Environments," I worked pretty hard on it. I gathered consensus, formed a plan for proposal, wrote a proposal, and jumped through necessary hoops to get the largest and most diverse international organization for technology in education to recognize our tribe as an official SIG. Once we were official, the real work began: We built on an annual "Playground" at the international conference into an event of importance. We took on monthly Second Life…

Help Re-envision the Virtual Environments Playground!

Help yourself to this, and help ISTE SIGVE radically rethink its Virtual Environments Playground for ISTE 2013 in San Antonio, Texas. Pretty please? Created with Wallwisher

Help! Now! Voting Ends Sunday!

I was in a meeting today with my dear friend (and ISTE President) Dr. Kecia Ray, and she introduced me as an internationally recognized expert in the field of 3D virtual learning. That felt good, even though I tend to run from the room anytime anyone invokes the "e" word. Help us kinda sorta prove that. Daily, from each device you have with a unique IP addie, visit, and vote (at least) in the Social Network category for ISTE-SIGVE. Help make this happen. It'll be huge, at least in a small way. 11:59 Sunday night, from I think Eastern time zone, it's over. You know what you need (and want) to do. Sincerely, with hugs from Nashville, Tennesee, Scott
