Here are my SL ALBUM!!!


SL after 8 months!!!!


If I take a look around me, I would claim I am living a real Second Life. I would have never thought about that a year ago. Whenever I am in SL, I forget about my FIRST LIFE.
After doing the activities in EXPLORING ACTIVE AND OTHER LEARNING APPROACHES, I am exhausted and happy at the same time. But it has been hard.
My first successful and unsuccesful story started when I had to prepare the exhibition tool. I started to choose a tool but when I went to the MUVEnation Island that tool was alredy done. This happened me twice. At the end I found a wonderful tool called INTERWRITE which was to prepare TEST for pupils and you could assess them. It is a wonderful tool. But it was horrible when I went to XLstreet trying to buy the tool. Horrible! I realised my English was horrible. I didn't understand the rules I had to follow. But after so so many hours I got it. It was wonderful. Ere helped me with the photo and the preparation of the exhibition. I was so excited with my exhibition. But suddenly, the story was sad when I could see that my tool had disappeared from the exhibition. Who had stolen it? That was my question. A never answered question.

My second successful and unsuccesful story started after the exhibition. I received a Holodeck but I damaged it. HORRIBLE!! I was the worst student in MUVEnation. Luckily, Ere and Paz tried to do their best to give it new one. At first, it seemed impossible. They told me it was to expensive and so on. But Paz tried to do her best again and Locki (who I don't know and who I don't know who to say thanks) gave me a new HOLODECK. While everything happened, I tried to build everything using BUDDY BUILDER which was also funny. I took some videos from YOUTUBE and I tried to build. I learnt more. Once I got the new Holodeck I forgot about Buddy Builder because I really wanted to know what exactly was HOLODECK. I was excited but extremelly worried at the same time. I will never forget when I met Ere and she was giving me the orders. I was so so nervous that I felt like a child who starts walking. I followed Ere orders but we didn't get it. I followed Ere orders but I was reading at the same time the photocopies prepared on Holodeck. We didn't success. But then I got again the tutorial about Holodeck and I worked on my own. I sometimes tried it and it was very successful. Then I prepare the scene. You can see it on my platform. I had some problems but I succeded. However I had a wall in the middle, which I couldn't enter because I was not allowed. However I also liked my Holodeck without the wall.

My last successful story was my lovely story. You can see my sun!!!!! since I am called SUNflower!! I enjoyed it... and the best thing is that I did it on my own.

M2: Activity 1:Workshop


Once upon a time, there was a girl called Sunflower Gurbux who was doing a course on SL. She was happy because she had learnt a lot but she was sad because she did not have enough time to spend on SL. She felt quite stupid, when she had to prepare a workshop. "Oh my God, what I am going to do, I am extremelly bad in everything" "Horrrible" she thought. Suddenly she thought she should have to leave the course. Otherwise, the two wonderful teachers told her to be brave. Louise (one of the teachers) advised me Sunflower to do a CONTEST. So, Sunflower started to attend contest... It was horrible, she even got up at 4 o'clock am (at night) and she attended 2 contests. Sunflower started to prepare a contest. She wanted to prepare some T-shirt but she didn't money and she was poor. She wanted to prepare some Gifts for the contest...and here it started HER NEW IDEA. She could do a workshop on GIFTS/PRESENTS.

Suddenly, she spent hours and hours trying to build presents and her teachers helped her a lot. But she wanted to have everything well-prepared. Then, the problem was that she didn't have peers. Luckly, her friend, Azu, told her she would attend. That was lovely and also the teacher would attend too. LOVELY!!!

Thus, Sunflower decided to do the workshop on Thursday 19th February 2009 on Muvenation island in SANDBOX. Sunflower organized everything, she prepared some rugs, some chairs and some presents to give to the attendants. It was quite nice. Everything was so green!!!!

However, Sunflower was quite sad because she only had three students on the workshop. There were many people near but only three students. One was Azu and the others were the two teacher. But at least, they were there supporting me. I appreaciate that.

M2: Exploring hands-on-workshops Activity 3


M2: Exploring hands-on-workshops Activity 2

After some days, after some searching and after assiting different types of workshop and after some time talking to my mentors (Louise and Erena), I have decided I am going to prepare a QUIZ about MUVENATION.


I took me quite a lot of time planning my workshop.

I chose the idea many times, because it is not easy to choose what one wants to do.

I suppose it will take about 45 minutes. No more than that.

M2: Activity 1 REFLECTION

On 1 February, Azu and me went to a workshop together. It was very funny in my opinion. It is better to be two than to be alone. Although I was not able to finish my bench because I am a very bad builder, Azu did a very nice job!!! I think that it is better to have SL in English, that was one of the reasons I couldn't find everything, and I did everything slowlier than the others. Then I was tired... but I waited there... I sat on Azu's bench. It was quite comfortable...

I think they say it is for beginners but at least you must be quite good, otherwise you do not follow.

Well in general, I found all the workshops good, but I was tired in two of them because I couldn't follow the class very well, because of the english and my little knowledge of building. I liked the philosophical workshop because I didn't have to do anything special.
