The LOLO Pet Shop & Education in Second Life:
Last year, The LOLO got busy building a part of the 3-D Worlds Project, for the online learning group, Learning Times. The 3-D Worlds Project is used by D75, the Special Education District in New York City, where students with Autism, Developmental Delays, and Physical Challenges can practice life skills in a safe environment.
The 3-D Worlds Project is an island in Second Life designed to help the students gain more independence.
The 3-D Worlds Project:
Within this program, the students practice real world activities, like buying a pet or applying for a job at a pet shop. One of the educators told me that the pet shop is many student's favorite part! I enjoyed my personal involvement with this project & was happy to see the success of the 3-D Worlds Project in this video (if video player isn't available, please use this link):
