I apologize for slacking off here, but I have been busy presenting, teaching, and doing all sorts of RL things. My hectic schedule is a wonderful tribute to the wonderfully chaotic nature of working in SL.
I belong to many groups in SL, and I would belong to about 65 more if they would allow such a thing. Obviously, Literature Alive! is my most active group (245 participants so far!). But here are some other groups that I love:
1. Real Life Educators - this is the official SL group for educators started by Pathfinder Linden. It is the most comprehensive list of educators inworld.
2. The Educators Coop - this is a group that I belong to by virtue of my membership in the Coop. It is quite active, and members like Grandma Bates (pictured) make it interesting and worthwhile.
3. ISTE - They offer a lot of great workshops and speakers.
4. Elven - They offer a lot of great resources geared to K-12 educators.
5. NMC Guests - NMC offers a lot of great programming (arts and education related).
6. SLDev - this is a group for developers in SL and is the one place where you can go with a technical question.
Now, I wish we could have more groups because I would totally add to my list of favorite shopping places. Lots of people ask about my favorites, so here they are:
For Hair - ETD, Calla, Panache
For Clothes - DE Designs, Crave, and Pixel Dolls
