Second Life - John Helmer

Learning Light have very kindly donated a whitepaper on Second Life.

 John Helmer wrote about Second Life…

“Many people see in Second Life an opportunity to carry out learning projects that constraints of geography or cost would make impossible through traditional, real world means. Others see in it a chance to engage a younger generation of learners1 impatient with the traditional forms of Education and Training. Beyond these more immediate concerns, many see in it a way to advance the practice of learning itself, creating new pedagogies, and extending and modifying old ones. Many, again, including large corporate companies such as IBM and Intel, see it as the shape of things to come – a proof of concept for the emerging 3D internet.”
