Workshop 7: Learning without borders - Cultural education with Second Life

Zsolt Kristóf, College Senior Lecturer, University of Debrecen, Hungary

(Nowadays considering many point of views most people as a virtual learning environment, utilize Second Life. The reasons can be – raising no claim of completeness – the dynamically changing environment, the adequately easy possibility of creating and the relatively high number of users. The Second Life is a three dimensional internet based virtual world. Its development began in 1999 by the Linden Research Inc. (Linden Lab). The servers opened on June 23, 2003 and a couple of million users registered since then. Second Life has been also discovered by several educational institutions, realizing this virtual world's enormous potential on the field of teaching and learning. There have been projects of astronomy, medical sciences, music, literature, biology, history, and also turistics or language learning. You may ask, why we are not experiencing a major breakthrough here. Why do not educate many more using virtual environments, for example Second Life. The key is, as I see, that it is not easy to master the skills you need to emerge as an efficient and professional virtual teacher. I will introduce you to the world of Second Life, of course approaching from the possibilities of education and learning. I will broaden theoretical information with practical experiences, based on real world projects.)
