apart from Ms. Booth having her students say thanks Enah! (say it in your head with a classic Aussie accent), the video in the post below is just cool to see how many instances of SoaS her class is running! seeing so many PCs in one room with OpenSim is almost overwhelming!
most of us probably use OpenSim from our homes where only one person has OpenSim open. i’ve never heard of LAN parties for OpenSim (sounds really geeky but also awesomely fun!) =D
seeing so many students actively working in OpenSim is pretty fun and it clearly works as a great educational tool for Kate Booth. it’s really nice to be thanked but the real hero is Ms. Booth!
she is the kind of educator that will find interesting, engaging, and effective tools for her students that allow them to express their creativity in meaningful ways
truth be told, the biggest win are the students – they “get it” and run with it like mad. and that means our future is brighter. when you see kids grasp technology and intrinsically excited to learn and express what they have learned, then they are unleashing their potential
Sim-on-a-Stick might be defined by so many megabytes on a USB drive, but in the hands of Ms. Booth’s students, there are no proverbial boxes to think outside of! her students are well beyond traditional learning constraints and no longer have the sky as a limit!
to Ms. Booth’s, and all, students: never stop being awesome and never stop pushing the limits!
