Chapter 14: 2007 Second Life

While Virtual Worlds had been around for a number of years, 2007 marked a peak in interest by educators to the environments and, specifically, Second Life. While much of the experimentation in education within Second Life often failed to do more than recreate existing structures and pedagogies that occurred in the “real world”, Second Life has paved the way for larger social acceptance and use of augmented reality platforms and may still see a number of applications for education emerge in the future. The chapter is read by Grant Potter.
