Hi Tucker and all.
I do a lot of work in Second Life and would be happy to answer questions
or connect you with teachers who use Teen Second Life.
I teach a course for teachers called Teaching and Learning in Virtual
Worlds, which is taught in completely on-line. We use Second Life for our
synchronous sessions and Moodle (like Blackboard) for asychronous work.
In this course we explore, observe and practice the opportunities and
challenges of teaching/learning in virtual worlds. Participants learn to
use communication and building tools as well as many of the existing multi
media tools and resources in this immersive learning environment. Other
virtual worlds are also explored including those for very young children.
Educational frameworks that support constructivist practice are examined.
This is a three credit graduate course through Marlboro College Graduate
School in Brattleboro Vermont. (Credit and audit options are available)
The summer session runs from the first week of May until the first week of
