One creative way in which virtual worlds can be integrated into a school learning system is the opportunity for students to actually create a virtual world. This month in Winooski, Vermont, about 80 middle school students were introduced to an innovative technological learning system. They were trained how to use animation software to create a virtual world.
Dean Ali Rafieymehr founded the “Kids in Technology and Science” program four years ago while teaching at Western New England College in Springfield, Mass. The animation software program he created is a learning system that caters to children’s behavior. For example, Rafieymehr separates the boys and the girls, saying that when they are grouped together, boys tend to take control. Among the life forms that students designed were T-Rexes, monkeys, lemurs, and skater girls, interacting however the students wanted.
