In this presentation, we will examine how an SL cybercampus can be used as part of K-12 classes. Also for teacher professional development.

David Deeds has been using Second Life in the classroom since 2006: 3 years in higher ed, 4 years in K-12. Lots of people are using SL in higher ed, so he’ll focus on K-12 for his presentation.
