NaNoWriMo @ Second Life®: O MELHOR DE DOIS MUNDOS 1: SECOND LIFE® E REDES SOCIAIS | Second Life and other Virtual Worlds | Scoop.it

Ser wrimo significa ter paixão pela escrita e, ao mesmo tempo, gostar de estar ligado a outros wrimos. Um wrimo isolado é um wrimo em perigo... de não conseguir escrever 50 mil palavras em apenas 30 dias.

Felizmente, escrever 'dentro' do Second Life® não implica parar de partilhar com outros wrimos aquilo que nos inspira - e até o que escrevemos - através das redes sociais, de forma fácil e sem ter de sair daquele ambiente virtual, como poderemos verificar nestes dois vídeos.

elearning hoje: Second Life: percepção do valor pedagógico antes e depois de experimentar o ambiente | Second Life and other Virtual Worlds | Scoop.it
Em 2008, a Murdoch University conduziu um estudo com o objectivo de avaliar a percepção do valor pedagógico que os alunos atribuíam ao Second Life, antes e depois de experimentarem aquele ambiente (encontra-se no vídeo, entre os minutos 3:29 e 5:11). As conclusões foram interessantes: depois da primeira experiência no Second Life, a percepção inicial dos alunos alterou-se e valor pedagógico atribuído ao ambiente foi mais elevado.
