On November 5th 2010, twenty rural school teachers from southern Oregon embarked on a virtual journey that has forever changed the way they socialize, share ideas and learn. In Ashlan Oregon, the group came together to hear about Project DIRECT and how this would revolutionize their relationship with technology and education and also the way in which they could network with fellow teachers. The workshop moved to Medford Oregon the next day and it was here that the teacher began their journey into the 3D immersive environment known as Second Life.
