Intercultural Education in Second Life

By admin | Mai 24, 2007

My last visit at the Charles Benjamin Center motivated me to search some more for projects dealing with intercultural education and using Second Life as a tool. Here are two interesting links that I found:

“Multicultural Discussions Inside Second Life”

Jow Pacino offers a concept for rolplays and subsequent discussions with a multicultural topic. The concept was tested in a pilot in November 2006, some feedback from students, screenshots and movies from the actual roleplay can be found on the site.

The Use of Virtual Worlds in High School Education

This paper by Manny Alvarez doesn’t exactly deal with intercultural education, but it was too good to be left out. Alvarez interviewed teachers about their use of Virtual Worlds for teaching purposes. It is available for download in PDF format.
