It would be awesome to have a 2nd life world.
Why don't we have a Room5ians Rule world?
If you do comment state yes or no if you support my idea.

I support you idea Hamiltron, I think it eould be cool to have a Room5ians Rule world.

It would be really cool to have a Room5ians world but how do we make one?
Your not old Mr. W hhmm.

mojo said...

yeah I agree with you hamiltron because it would be a really good place to learn from other teachers from around the globe.

I dont have a second life, but I saw a big thing about it on Campbell Live, and it looked awesome!

mech boy said...

I agree with you at this point Hamiltron. But I'm still undecided because I don't know anything about it, for all I know it could be a bad idea.
Would other people other than room5ians be allowed on it?
Is it a more effective way of communicating than on the blog?
People might be silly and fool around instead of using it as a learning tool.

If we can't get a web site for our second life why don't we just go on Runescape. Because there is a new thing on Runescape called clans or clubs or something, on there you can add people on your list and talk to them,or we could go on club penguin.

Log-on said...

it probably wont happen cause its very hard making games of that quality.

Snow Girl said...

Im sure that it would be great to have a second life but is it totaly safe? And how can you find that out???

Aquagirl said...

I have my ups and downs about the idea but it would be a very interesting experince.:-}

kitty milo said...

it would be awesome to make a second life, is it kind of like sims? it might not be safe or it might be restricted ages but is it a more affective and funner way to learn? yeh I think we should make a room5ians world but we don't know how to make one(i don't think we know).
Thanks bye=]

I would love to have a rm5ian rules world! We would have, like, a place where you could chat about different things, and a snack bar, and, well, I love food, so billions and.........
Ahhhhhhh..........
ANyway, back on topic, I think a second life is a bit dangerous. And, I mean, it is worse that your real life! I mean, on Earth, we can see who we are actually talking to. On the internet, all we see is a young lady dressed in pink saying shes eleven and goes to Hukanui. I like my life better. Crazy, embarrasing, but you don't have to create a whole new sort of life, and try and balance that as well. Tricky, dangerous. KEEP AWAY FROM THE TIGERS!
Laugh out loud, Neina.

Miss Signal said...

Wow, you guys have some great thoughts about Second Life. Neina, I agree that it can be a bit dangerous as you don't know who you are actually talking to. It would be great to have your own class in SL. Did you know some people go to classes/letures in Second Life?

MrWoody said...

very cool, Miss Signal - that sounds intriguing...

chickenfeety said...

I think Log-on is right it probably wouldn't happen unless Mr Woody could get someone in to help us. But if we did make a world of our own, could we use it for fun as well as learning or would we be too silly and not use it for learning.

My teacher was going to show us second life but unfortunatly she didn't have enough time!!!! Any way you should check out my blog go to http://m3rbs.21classes.com/m3tayla. I hope you comment on my blog!!!

mudpies02 said...

We already have a room5ians rule world - right here!! lol
Anyway, what IS second life exactly???

Dreamhuntress said...

I use second life on runescape and club penguin,but club penguins really boring.If we did have a second we could raise money for charity because on runescape and club penguin you have to pay money to because a member.

kitty milo said...

im going to join!!! i hope im allowed mr woody=]

MrWoody said...

i have a sneaking suspicion you are not allowed to join at your age and really its probably not an ideal place for your students yet. its more of an adult place and pretty boring really.
runescape is better for you guys. and maybe that penguin place? what is it again?
take care,
mr woody

i can give you a hand with "second life" sah. i have an account and you should know that it is not that easy to create a world, it requires for a start a lot of L$ and then you have to work with it and it would become a real hassle. but it is possible to make it private, all you have to do is buy up a section of land and put a guard on it and only give access to people you want in. as to whether it is safe, their is a strict code of conduct, not to mention a easy abuse reporter. only problem i can see with second life is that you have to download a client and that costs usage then i cost usage just to run.
fight the power.
