Schome & News

Reading A second look at school life, I've just found out about Schome - not school, not home, but schome, "a project led by the Open University to develop new education systems in both real and digital worlds." Basically, it is about using massive multiplayer online games as virtual classrooms. You can find out more here and watch an introduction to Shome Park at Second Life, available on YouTube, here. Or you could check the schome website...
