Our team is making progress with our final project as we feverishly work to meet the requirements. We are beginning to feel like there is light at the end of this tunnel. We have ambitious hopes of producing an effective instructional unit and are trying our best! This week’s blog is short as time certainly will not suspend itself on my account. So much to do and so little time…

There is no question in my mind that I have a wonderful team to work with for our final design project. We have been meeting at least twice a week to work on the design document and the building of our instructional unit in SL. In fact, we worked for at least 5 hours this past Thursday evening. How are we doing, you might ask? I feel that our efforts are diligent and determined. I feel our project is beginning to take shape. I feel we are learning by doing. I feel thankful for what we have accomplished thus far. I feel, if we continue to work hard, we’ll produce a great unit. However, if I am to be honest, I also feel a bit frustrated because learning by doing also means mistakes are made along the way. Of course, I speak for myself, LOL. Our team wants to do a good job and I don’t want to let my teammates down. Hmmm, now is a good time to magically have 36 hours in each day. Wouldn’t that be fantabulous?!   

Okay, enough blogging….off to work I go!
I have always been a firm believer that knowledge acquisition exponentially grows when we examine other perspectives, ideas, and work. I feel that others significantly contribute to my learning experiences when I am privileged to observe colleagues and more important, receive feedback from them.

We visited builds by students in Norway tonight. We were asked to critically review their work using criteria pertaining to delivering education in SL. While visiting three different projects, I was inspired to make improvements to our project. One major issue that I experienced was the inability to move my avatar. A few others were experiencing difficulty as well. It was so severe that I had to ask my team to teleport me to each project, LOL. I wonder if the increased amount of avatars in the area affected movement? I was able to move freely when I returned to our parcel in COE. On a positive note, our team took notes on ways we could improve our project and we will try our best. A hui hou!
