A Virtual World Environment for Group Work

  title={A Virtual World Environment for Group Work},
  author={E. Brown and M. Hobbs and M. Gordon},
This paper seeks to show that virtual worlds provide a useful addition to the use of computer mediated learning tools. We discuss the underlying educational context and link this to the properties of virtual worlds and, in particular, that of Second Life. We report on the progress of a project for developing group work which seeks to link affordances in the environment to learning outcomes and employs a sociallysituated, constructivist, pedagogical framework.
