Here’s an announcement from a fellow Second Life educator that was posted to the SLED listserv today. Looks like there will be prizes at the event! PacRimX is mentioned in the book under the Education category. Sarah is truly one of the pioneers in education in Second Life, someone I looked to for information when we were getting our project off the ground.
