Second Life

What is Second Life? The title describes really well what it is, it is a virtual world that reflects our own where one can create an avatar to live a second life.  To state succinctly, it’s a game that virtually mimics the real world.  The overall usability of Second Life is very easy and accessible.  It’s free to use (although items may be purchased) and anyone with minimum cpu requirements and internet can log on and play.  There are a lot of possibilities for SL in the future and in my future.  Even though it mimics our world, the limitations are taken away and the freedom of imagination is unleashed. From an educator’s standpoint SL can be very useful in creating learning situations. I’m not sure how much I will actually get into SL as a hobby or game, but I see it more as a tool for learning.  As I discover more about SL I may find myself living more virtually than in reality
