International Schools Island in Second Life

REALLY exciting news .... what I did in the summer holidays .... took deliver of an island in Second Life (3D online virtual world).
The Island, called "International Schools Island" was delivered by Linden Labs on the 9th September 2007 (or the 10th depending on your time zone)
The mission, concept, purpose, functionality and the layout of the Island had been planned over the previous two months by the two owners .... Shamblesguru Voom (a.k.a. Chris) and Takeme Homewood (a.k.a. Jenny).
The Island is designed to support international schools in the 17 countries in S.E.Asia but we suspect that it will also be of specific help to public schools and those worldwide .... in fact all educators are most welcome to take advantage of what will be offered here.

We are keeping a Blog which is designed to document the whole process of setting up the island
and community ... in the hope that it will become a case study for future developers. http://internationalschoolsisland.blogspot.com
There is also now a page on Shambles purely about Second Life .. with resources and links relevant to teaching and learning www.shambles.net/secondlife
