We had our neighbours round last night. Chris works for IBM and was telling me that he had just been at virtual conference with colleagues from around the world. He had used his own avatar and attended the conference in Second Life on an island which IBm had created.
Checking it our today I found a link which explained what IBM are doing.
It struck me that there is an opportunity here for an entrepreneurial person/business to create a second life environment to meet the needs of the growing number of children worldwide who are home educated. I’m not promoting this kind of education over face-to-face interaction but for some children it might enhance their educational experience?
