Some Foundations for Second Life Pedagogy

An excellent article has recently been created by Neil LaChapelle (University of Waterloo) on the 'Educause Connect' website. The article is titled 'Some Foundations for Second Life Pedagogy' and provides a nice reflection on teaching methods in SL and some thoughts on its best uses. Neil writes,
"...the combination of:
- Empathy
- Encounter
- Exploration
* Rules (Logic, conceptual/factual structure)
* Play (Learning activity, processing)
* Culture
...does offer a foundation for some pretty rigorous work on the educational uses of the Second Life platform. It's not the whole story, but it's a great place to start." (Accessed on 6th August 2007 from http://connect.educause.edu/blog/HiredEd/somefoundationsforse/44785?time=1186397357)

It's a good article and well worth a read if you are interested in the educaional use of Second Life. Thanks to Eloise Pasteur's blog post for putting me on to this.
