Pio will be presenting at SLanguages 2010 today... wowow.. she's so nervous but happy to be able to share her passion for teaching and learning in SL. Well, this is the info on the workshop.. Later she'll tell us about the conf and her experience... ooops almost forget... she'll be also participating in an unconference:
An unconference is a part without set program when conference participants get together, vote for a topic that they wish to discuss with others and then split into discussion groups. At the end of the 30 min discussion everyone meets again and a spokesman of each group relates their findings. Conferences which are entirely based on this concept are called barcamps or educamps.
This session will last 60 minutes

Now back to the workshop.... she's counting with the help of her dear Artstonian friends, to them a warm hug.. without them.. this wouldn't be possible.
