IL2007: Second Life, part three

The final session on Tuesday concerning Second Life had Kelly Czarnecki and David Lee King talking about working with teens on Teen Second Life. Some thoughts included:
  • Teens and adults need to know the basics before taking on a project
  • Projects may take longer than expected
  • Teens can get very engaged when working in a virtual world
  • Projects can be focused on a specific school or activity (e.g., teen digital bookcamp)
  • how do you assess your work?
  • Who handles the money in SL?
  • Hands-on learning creates engaged students
Tomorrow (Wednesday) I'm doing a 15-minute Cyber Tour on Second Life at 12:30 p.m. For those who have not really seen it, this will be an opportunity to see what a virtual world looks like (as well as ask questions).
