Ball State University has posted a faculty spotlight at the above link on Sarah Robbins, AKA Intelligirl.
Sarah was one of the first people involved with education in Second Life that I met online last year when we started the PacRimX project. She is a mentor of sorts, sharing her experiences with her students through her blog(s) for anyone who is interested.
Her latest blog is Ubernoggin: Big Brains – Big Thoughts
Sarah is currently putting the finishing touches on her upcoming book: Second Life for Dummies (which will have a short blurb on PacRimX).
If there are celebrities in the world of Second Life Education, Sarah is definitely one of the A-List stars. Check out her spotlight and the links out to other resources. Way to go Sarah! (very cool mixed reality portrait)
