Teaching with SoaS - Resources for Educators

This page is a course syllabus for those who attend my webinars/workshops on this subject, but also to help educators who, although unable to attend the webinars, are nevertheless interested in learning more about how Sim-on-a-Stick can help them use virtual worlds in their classrooms, even when there's no access to the Internet at school. Here, educators will find all the information they need to start teaching with SoaS.
