Just a brief announcement and invitation: I was invited to be the guest of the next ISTE Speaker Series Session in Second Life on Tuesday, February 19, 6 PM SLT. I’ll be talking about my experience of being an online tutor and I hope you can join me for a great discussion. Here’s the official announcement from the ISTE Second Life wiki:

Online Tutoring Across Different Platforms with Alja Sulčič (SL: iAlja Writer)ISTE hosts great regular events, so you might want to check out their wiki for announcements for other events as well or check out Kevin Jarrett’s blog for great posts about what’s going on at ISTE Second Life HQ. I must admit I haven’t yet managed to attend any of their events in person (6 PM SLT means 3 AM for me! :( ), but I’ve heard great things about them. So, hope to see you on Tuesday!
