The Final Detail

With Esme’s help, and that is a serious understatement, I got my Inspiration timeline created at MCGC. She is a marvel. I have vowed to take remedial building workshops to improve my skills. I believe I can learn to build, like the little engine that could. I think I can, I think I can. I realized as she was helping to create the walkway with my timeline that we were working with geometry and algebra. Duh. Just another example of the practical applications for SL in the classroom. Someone like me…who although may appear to be linear (hence the lengthy timeline) is actually a very visual person that likes to do things hands-on to learn best.

Here is picture of the timeline as it resides now on the MCGC Island as well as happily in my inventory. HMMM maybe I will put it on the lawn in front of DY building on LLI.

I am as happy as a clam…so I might just go dig some. Thanks again Esme.

The Project…A Closer Look at the Teen Grid and How to Get There

Now that I have finished entertaining half of the Western Civilization for the past 5 days I can get back to work. I have a thousand posts to read. ARRRGH.

I don’t know if there is going to be more information in the forums regarding the project but my thoughts are these. I have looked at the rubric and the forums and in-world participation is far more weighty than the final project so how important is the project?

I am thinking I need to focus on this opportunity to meet, talk and potentially plan with Peggy Sheehy. She has a project in place and has already had experience, a positive one with Fred/Gus from Firesabre, with establishing a presence on the Teen Grid.

I am wondering if attending her breakouts at the Alan November Conference, a personal interview and the development of an action plan on how I will move my district into the virtual worlds would be an acceptable project? An additional part would be to chronicle what I learn from Peggy to the class. There were definitely two or three others interested in the concept.

I am hoping that my approval for the Teen Grid comes through prior to the conference. I hope to get a glimpse of the Teen Grid but don’t know if that is possible. One thing I know for sure is I do not want to make any mistakes and get banned.

If this project is feasible, then I will ask Esme for an extension on my proposal until the 19th, the day after the conference ends.

I am going to post this in the forums as well. I may want to begin some of my post in both places since I want a record of this after the course ends.
