    Lucinda Lavender: morning Yaky....:)
    Lucinda Lavender: Yaku...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well yaky didn´t sound that bad either :P
    Lucinda Lavender: :) my typing...
    Lucinda Lavender: fingers are cold from being outside feeding the chickens...
    Lucinda Lavender: shall warm up with more coffee
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, i just got another cup as well
    Yakuzza Lethecus: before i was in a pretty interesting and emotional session about homeschooling, that´s not allowed in germany btw
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Eliza:)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Luci and Yaku
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey eliza
    Lucinda Lavender: we are having coffee...
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus smiles
    Yakuzza Lethecus: with milk in my case
    Yakuzza Lethecus: without sugar
    Lucinda Lavender: no homeschooling in Germany...ah
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well the guy who mainly spoke is a teacher himself going to do that in austria soon because he´s not pleased with the schoolsystem there
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding
    Yakuzza Lethecus: the children talking about ipads on the schoolyard and in the school it´s like babytalk as he put it
    Eliza Madrigal: People need to have ways to get around the system outside of just 'lots of money'
    Eliza Madrigal: so I agree with homeschooling, even tried it
    Eliza Madrigal: that said, I understand the limitatins, possibly better than someone looking from the outside
    Eliza Madrigal: *limitations
    Lucinda Lavender: limitations...an example?
    Eliza Madrigal: ah, well for example yes there are social groups for homeschoolers but they can be heavily weighted with one ideology etc
    Eliza Madrigal: it is difficult to maintain inclusive groups
    Lucinda Lavender: right...have imagined that
    Eliza Madrigal: also, it does end up costing quite a bit to make sure bases you've never heard of are covered...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, metaverses might have an impact on that as well
    Eliza Madrigal: :) our kids surpass us
    Eliza Madrigal: agree Yaku
    Eliza Madrigal: online, I had *wonderful* resources
    Eliza Madrigal: and access to excellent conferences, etc
    Yakuzza Lethecus: a french teacher sitting in france teaching children from all around the world while noone knows who is in which socio economic class
    Eliza Madrigal: and, then there is the issue of someone has not to work, or to work from home, to be there with kids
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding
    Yakuzza Lethecus: noone will care who is immigrant
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Eliza Madrigal: Have you seen Kahn Academy?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: the concept even ain´t exist
    Lucinda Lavender: hi Arch:)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes i think
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Arch and Susan :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey susan,arch and obs
    Lucinda Lavender: HI Susan:)
    Eliza Madrigal waves to obs
    Lucinda Lavender: hi Observerm
    Eliza Madrigal: Kahn Academy is a Utube phenomenon... began with an uncle tutoring his neice I think... then she had to go home at a distance, so he started putting up short lessons
    Eliza Madrigal: mostly Math
    Archmage Atlantis: There is a time when the observations are complete
    Lucinda Lavender: sounds interesting...
    Eliza Madrigal: these short lessons caught on like wildfire, the simplicity of them... so now there is a whole system, etc
    Archmage Atlantis: There is a time when the decision can be made
    Lucinda Lavender: very cool...
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, the revolution of going at one's own pace
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Bleu:)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Bleu :)
    Bleu Oleander: hi everyone :)
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Riddle :)
    Riddle Sideways: Hi EveryBody
    Lucinda Lavender: WE have been speaking of the options of homeschooling...and it limitations as well and benefits
    Lucinda Lavender: as well as...
    Lucinda Lavender: HI Riddle
    Eliza Madrigal: I think having a taste of homeschooling is useful, because the kids then go into school with a sense of their learning being their own responsibility
    Lucinda Lavender: benefit...interesting word
    Lucinda Lavender: yes I sure can see that...
    Eliza Madrigal: but I guess that would depend on the message given. a teacher can give that message too
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Sharon
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi everyone, wow big crowd this morning :)
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Lucinda Lavender: true :)
    Bleu Oleander: hi Sharon
    Archmage Atlantis: The circle is not complete
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey bleu,ssl, riddle
    Lucinda Lavender: challenges in education...
    Bleu Oleander: hey Yaku
    Riddle Sideways: like any school, homeschooling depends on the teachers and the students: energy, skills, etc.
    Archmage Atlantis: silence
    Lucinda Lavender: perhaps some children benefit from staying in a smaller circle to begin with and then socially expanding at a later time..can see that too.next pause I would ask what the first thing you notice is...
    Archmage Atlantis: Thank you, m bell
    Eliza Madrigal: agree.. think the 'knowing there are options' part is *most* important
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Lugh, ltns

    Archmage Atlantis: Good answer Lugh
    SophiaSharon Larnia: (brb)
    Eliza Madrigal: the maker of the 'waiting for superman' documentary starts off by driving by the public school he wants to believe in, to take his kids to a private school, and feeling guilty about it :) I did that with charter schools
    Lucinda Lavender: noddding...have not seen it...
    Lucinda Lavender: there was an interesting sound!
    Eliza Madrigal: someone brought their inner elephant

    Xirana Oximoxi: between us:)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, when i try to explain i usually end up in mmorpg addiction discussions, so i hardly talk about sl
    Sunshine Vayandar: hehe ;)
    Lucinda Lavender: ah
    Sunshine Vayandar: it's like belonging to a secret cult

    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I think some people understand sl.. and other people will never do... at first I didnt'
    Riddle Sideways: like any other subject, alas
    Eliza Madrigal: sometimes what I like to do with rl friends, is to say 'wow I just came from this concert on a cliffside...." etc. and then wait a long time before filling in the background :) That way I get to paint a picture before they close off.
    Bleu Oleander: interesting new book on virtual world "Infinite Reality" by Blascovish and Bailenson .... might help in talking about it :)
    Alfred Kelberry: meep!
    Lucinda Lavender: sounds interesting Bleu:)

    Xirana Oximoxi: sorry.. I meant ty Blue:))
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: but ty Riddle too... anyway:)
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I don't understand the feelings one can have in SL
    Xirana Oximoxi: so near true
    Lucinda Lavender: finding a place to play...
    Xirana Oximoxi: and we don't have a lot of references about the other one
    Riddle Sideways: ha, there is a "trailer" for the book... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYGaPPhqpdE
    Xirana Oximoxi: and I'm still surprised about what Arch said one day... words are only 8% of human comunication
    Sunshine Vayandar: today I went back to the SL university where I used to have my building school - they had a lecture about rainforests ...
    Eliza Madrigal: I can only read the book if it doesn't play that music, hehe
    Xirana Oximoxi: I think it may be more
    Sunshine Vayandar: that reminded me how much can be done in SL
    Riddle Sideways: yes, X am still processing that statement
    Xirana Oximoxi: I may be oldfashioned... but it's the first time I see a trailer of a book:)
    Lucinda Lavender: Ha Eliza:)

    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Sunshine Vayandar: interesting video
    Eliza Madrigal: what is so strange, is that I seem to have a few friends who say 'I wish I could go to this kind of thing or that kind of thing' but they won't try a virtual avenue
    Eliza Madrigal: they seem addicted to the wishing
    Sunshine Vayandar: hmm yes I notice that a lot
    Sunshine Vayandar: ppl have all these dreams
    Sunshine Vayandar: but would never try and do something to get there
    Bleu Oleander: people are hesitant to try new technology
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe it is intimidating...
    Sunshine Vayandar: I was running my internet cafe for 10 years in this small town - and even after 10 years I saw so much resistance
    Xirana Oximoxi: I've talked about it to a friend that is living a bad moment in her life... I think it can hekp her.. but she doesn't
    Xirana Oximoxi: I feel I've learnt a lot of thinks in SL... about myself, and also about others
    Sunshine Vayandar: me too ...
    Eliza Madrigal: have been thinking about your cafe and 'open learning' and the Indian cafe in Hungary, Sun...
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: like SL, the feeling of open sharing
    Eliza Madrigal: lots of various education levels, skill sets, backgrounds, ages...
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes I basically learnt about open source software and wanted to do the same in RL ....
    Sunshine Vayandar: so the idea come from the net
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Sunshine Vayandar: such an open international environment
    Eliza Madrigal: I like the idea that everything is already included even instructions in open source ... that's one of the first things I noticed about SL, people came here to be generous
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi Aph ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Aph :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: hi Aph
    Bleu Oleander: hi Aph

    Eliza Madrigal: so like there are all these people whose biggest problem in life, is that they want to share
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: a lot of wonderful people, of course... but one must be careful too
