Hello and happy May to you and to yours. May Day! May Day!
Give yourself the gift of viewing this 13 minute video comparing SL and WoW and giving specific examples of how learning and teaching can be more immersive. I hate to use the "F" word (Fun) because it somehow seems to lower the educational value in the minds of some readers. But you're not one of those, now, are you?
I lifted this embed from the new issue of Virtual Education Journal, and give yourself that gift as well--it's 149 pages of excellent reading. Get it? http://issuu.com/edovation/docs/april_2014_vej
