Second Life – Real World Education?

secondlifeMost of us are aware of the online phenomenon Second Life.  But how many of us are aware of its real world educational opportunities?  There are a multitude of groups and organizations with presences in Second life (even the American Library Association has a virtual campus), and many of them are using this venue for education in the real world.  Below are a list of resources to help you get started:

The SimTeach Second Life Education Wiki , The Second Life in Education Resource Page, an in-depth curriculum for training students to use Second Life created by Global Kids, Inc. , and an explanation and evaluation of a project ‘Science Through Second Life.‘ developed by Global Kids, Inc.
