So. I found that the internet is becoming more than just a quick outlet for research papers. The internet is becoming a form of virtual reality. Right now in my Computer Mediated Communications class we are getting on secondlife and running around with our avatars (or characters) and having class. It's actually pretty cool. There are different cities with shops, videos, games, clothes, shoes, clubs, you name it. Is this the new revolution? Are classrooms just an old fashioned way or are there still benefits to them with all the technology today? I think that classrooms are a better means of communication but not necessarily learning. With this virtual reality means of "play" or a form of a game, we can learn things without feeling like we are doing work.
pretty awesome huh?
