Reminder: meeting TODAY at 2pm PDT/9pm GMT/10pm BST. As this session is an opportunity for 60 min of unfocused chat between OpenSim educators I've called the new region/world Babble. You will be able to access it via the Kitely map or via Hypergrid location grid.kitely.com:8002:babble. Hope to see you there!

That means the first meetup would be on 25th May, i.e. next Sunday. There's no agenda although subsequent meetings might include visiting one or more regions and/or having brief talks. Maybe a pecha kucha session where multiple folk tell us either what they're doing or what they want to do? A session based on gizmos, teaching strategies, etc.? Whatever, your call.

Anyway, put the date in your diary if interested -- I'll announce a location nearer the time.

Next Educator meetup

Although the attendance was modest, it was very high value both in terms of technical expertise and accumulated knowledge of the platform and its evolution. Hopefully everyone present got something from the meetup and it was agreed to hold the next one on the use of sound to enhance educational builds. This will take place on June 29th at the same time ( 2pm PDT/9pm GMT/10pm BST). Part of the meeting will see Aaron Griffiths demonstrating how sound became an integral aspect of the design of one of his most recent builds. Hope you can join us!

Graham,

I was late to the gathering, but I enjoyed it immensely! The conversation was focused and the depth of knowledge was impressive (except for mine, of course). It was inspiring to share ideas with fellow educators. I look forward to seeing everyone again.
