     Peggy Sheehy met Lucas Gillispie at GLS in 2008 where they forged an ongoing friendship framed in a mutual desire to reach kids, to reintroduce the concept of playing to learn and learning to play, and to investigate the role of new tools and venues in that pursuit.  An educator for 13 years, Peggy's main arena has been the Teen Grid of Second Life where she established the first middle school presence in 2006 that has now grown to support over 1400 student accounts. Continuing her exploration of new avenues for student engagement she began to explore MMORPGs and with a group of ISTE colleagues entered Azeroth on Sisters of Elune.  A founding member of the Cognitive Dissonance Guild, which now hosts over 50 international educators, Peggy is now helping to lay the groundwork for education to embrace the possibilities of learning in yet another new frontier, World of Warcraft.  She will be presenting about this project, as well as her work in Second Life at NECC, BLC, and Games in Education this summer sof 2009.  She can be contacted at peggysheehy@mac.com, or followed on Twitter: peggysheehy .
