Sharks Presentation

I chose the topic of sharks because it has been something i have been interested in for so many years now! I think they are so fascinating and it is so cool to me to learn about the all the different types. Did you know there are over 18 types of sharks? It is so weird to me that we not only have beasts on land but in the water.

Orientation in Second Life

In the video "Orientation in Second Life" is about using a system called second life to have users live in an alternate world. But it has become very confusing for most users. It seems that users come and visit the site once but become confused and never revisit. They have made guides to help the avatars find their way through the space. This works with educational organizations to improve orientation for new users. This is still an ongoing experiment.
My biggest take away from this video was the fact that this would be a good tool to use for communication and technology use. It would give people a chance to become better users of technology. It is also a fun way to explore and talk with people. I've never been much of a technology person so to see neat stuff like this is so fascinating to me. It would be neat for students to use something like this to explore technology and to communicate to each other.
