The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) now offers a center for networking and collaboration on its own virtual “island” in the Second Life multi-user virtual environment (MUVE).
The ISTE Second Life headquarters is located online at http://slurl.com/secondlife/ISTE%20Island/93/83/30. To access ISTE Island, you will be prompted to create a free Second Life account and avatar. Island visitors with Second Life accounts can log in here.
ISTE sponsors a Second Life networking group offering weekly networking socials and topical events for members. A twice-monthly speaker series in the online world covers breaking issues in educational technologies.
The ISTE Second Life program offers a variety of volunteer opportunities. Volunteers serve as ISTE docents and new member greeters, give educational tours, build resources, and serve as presenters or panelists during events.
