Check it out: Info on social web environments

Marie Curie once said, “Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood. ”

If machinima and avatars are not in your parental lexicon, deep breath, relax…Shaping Youth is out to unfog the lens and peek into virtual teaching and learning on the teen grid of Second Life.

Virtual worlds, emerging social media networks, and just about any kids’ digital dialogue can be perceived as a ‘threat’ by concerned parents…so we’re big on deconstructing “media, shaping youth” to amp up comfort levels via knowledge.

Shaping Youth » Virtual Worlds As Learning Environs For Global Kids

That’s a great resource from Amy over at Shaping Youth for anyone looking to dive into learning about the social webworld.  Definitely worth a gander for links and lingo!

(And thanks for the kudos, Amy 🙂 )

    You deserve every one of ’em! Question: How come I’ve joined your community but don’t show up in living color anymore? Did MyBlogLog revamp? hmn…I admittedly use my reader a lot but lately, have been ON your site yet I’m still not showing up…Can you see my ‘footprint’ even if I can’t? Curious. (for other sites too!) ah, I have so much to learn from the digerati…

    As for content swaps, I’d love to ask permission to reprint your ‘primer series’ for parents in its entirety (the one I mentioned in the links above) as a guest editorial with lead-in/attribution/links of course and a grand finale interview on that ‘moderated chat’ conundrum we discussed earlier for more in depth Q&A. Viable?

    p.s. Purple power is workin’ for me…;-)
