History of the SL term "rez/derez"

Torley can explain better than I can what rez means in SL. I found this video that shows the word being first used in TRON. What a travel back in time!

IALLT09 - Where do I start?

There are very few conferences from which I take away great ideas that will immediately impact what I do and how I teach, and none but one that rejuvenates the professional soul and really is a family reunion in my mind. IALLT (The International Association for Language Learning Technology) is that conference. I've spent so much time getting ready for IALLT09 in Atlanta that it has been a month since I've cared to blog! Well, that and it is not in my nature...I have to work at it. Anyway, I'm sure the next few days will be peppered with random memory shots from IALLT09 that I find interesting.

Stay tuned!
