Last night I went on a walk through Second Life (see my last post) and spent some time looking around David Warlick's office but I made a little mistake. I sat down on a comfortable looking chair in his office...
Well, I got distracted in RL, so I clicked to quit out of SL. The next morning I realised I hadn't left David's office before quitting. I quickly logged in to get out of the chair and walk outside and who should be standing in front of me but a confused David. I apologised for being in his office and he told me that he hadn't noticed me come in (which I hadn't as I had just appeared). We then proceeded to have an interesting albeit brief conversation about the glass walls in SL and learning how to live in a world without secrets or locks.
It is quite difficult constructing a code of conduct for a new world. This makes me think of our students walking into our schools and classrooms. For many of these students it is a new world with new rules that they neither know nor understand.
