Virtual Psychology in Second Life


Over the last month I've been busy preparing a funding bid for Derby University to lead a massive collaboration between Ten different organisations including seven major UK Universities. We plan a community of Virtual Psychology in Second Life to advance knowledge, teaching, and research in virtual worlds via innovation and technology. If successful in acquiring research money, we will take the emerging field of Virtual Psychology to the next level with a variety of innovative projects in the virtual world. It is a very exciting venture and the process of putting the bid together has already led to a number of spin-off projects.

  1. Are you still working on autism and Second Life?

  2. Yes, very much. I'm trying to establish the use of Second Life by people with Autism and Aspergers's Syndrome. Ultimately, this may lead to intervention work for those who can gain from the unique way SL can facilitate communication and 'social interaction'. It's already being used by a very large number of Asperger's diagnosed people. I have a group called Autism Research in SL if you'd like to get involved or find out more.

  3. Yes, I really would like to get involved. I'm new to SL, but have had a course about another 3d world. I work as a special needs teacher with children who have pdd in the age of 9 to 12 years old.
    I have my thoughts about this. But here in the Netherlands I hardly here about it. But perhaps I don't have the right sources.

  9. There are some interesting points in time in this article but I don’t know if I see all of them center to heart. There is some validity but I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as well Shootaliberal.com Kinoshita-toshiyuki.net Host4gains.com
