Games and boards

Games and boards

I think I have become much more visually conscious since spending so much time in Second Life.
better  than describing often is adding a few images. Below, participants were at work with boards of various kinds. (Some notes afterwards).

This game and games like it can be created simply in WORD or such a programme and uploaded as a texture

Our simple task was to choose one of the numbers, press F1 and edit the text.

The marvellous thing about such straightforward  "games" is that they easily generate spoken language - at first answers to questions, but sometimes developing into discussions.

Even Felix, my SL dog, is interested in board games.

The group turned to working with programs for working with texts.

Carol asks Osna to generate media on a prim. (More below).

Osna's attempt was OK, but straighter would have been better.

With board straightened, Osna displays a video from Vimeo.

Carol mentioned some word processings  programs on the internet which can be accessed from and used in Second Life.::

PrimaryPad is a web-based word processor designed for schools that allows pupils and teachers to work together in real-time.



TitanPad lets people work on one document simultaneously.
We are rescuing EtherPad for your use.


Mmm. I do not know the program, there are several and I must ask Carol which one she means.
