Second Life, too much like real life?

After a great presentation from Hayley and Jess on Second Life, I now begin to wonder if Second Life is too much like real life. Is it all a little bit scary that we can go and grab a coffee with people over the world at an American University? So my question is where do we draw the line? Do we continue to push the boundaries and create a platform that allows us to have the world at our keyboards and mice?

Place in Education.

Does the virtual world have a place for our students? I think it does, just where that place is has not yet been clearly defined. A program like Second Life however I do not think has the place in a classroom from what I’ve experienced. Although I am unable to judge without seeing Teen Life. The interaction between students and the educational ‘excursions’ that students can venture on do have potential.
