Good Educational Sites In SL, 2011 Roundup
Location: VWER meeting

Readers new to virtual worlds for education, or perhaps looking for new places to go alone or with students, should have a look at the transcript posted from a large group of educators at the VWER meeting of August 25.
It's doubly useful in how I aggregated recommended sites, by academic field, at the start of the transcript.
My sense is that while schools are generally downsizing their SL presence and educators are moving some work to OpenSim, much great SL content remains. In fact, I'd hazard a guess about why the Reaction Grid region for the 1939 World's Fair appeared. It's one of the few well known quality builds outside SL for educators.
I'm hoping that in comments to this post (and the post at VWER) readers can suggest other sites, particularly those outside SL. Ener Hax will, I hope, discuss what is going on at I Live in Science Land, and we'll get other non-SL updates useful for "back to school" planning for sites such as Heritage Key, where I've not been in some time.
