  1. Really cool video. I wonder what third graders think of something like OpenSim. Do third graders already have exposure to the popular MMOs out there?

    How does it work in a classroom, working on something collaborative like in the video. Do they work on computers in the classroom, build their own stuff on a separate chip, then later import it into a single build? Or do they all log in to the same instance and work together?

  2. Kate Booth runs SoaS both as standalone for kids but also does it networked using Erik N’s hack and this is all done in the classroom. if you look at the Coffs Harbour blog, you can find lots of images and videos of them at work. she even has one kid named Trevor look at the camera and proudly say “Thanks Ener!” with a thumbs up and the quintessential Aussie accent! =)

  3. Does anyone know, if Seifert Surface’s (aka Henry Segernan http://www.segerman.org/) mathematical art is available in any OpenSim-Grid? It’s part of the video, and I have not seen it before outside of SL.

  5. Fantastic website link Beacara and I was wondering who created all the amazing builds on the Warwick University sim. I’m going to need to make some more videos with some more Aussie ‘Thanks Ener’ in them for you Ener =D Also, just to give you a smile, I have a student at Coffs Public who is so excited as he is coming with me next week as a guest expert builder to help the students at Crossmaglen Public School with their virtual projects. He made the ship (amongst other things) for the Australian Gold unit I did last year. It is great when students are allowed to travel to other schools and share their expertise. OpenSim has allowed to him to achieve real success in his learning projects and self esteem within a social context.It’s all great stuff.

    Cheers
