    • High School for Global Citizenship
      • Brooklyn, New York
      • Four schools in same building
      • About 300 pupils

        • Energy use
        • Building materials
        • Recycling
        • Use of resources (Energy, water and food)

      • More guidance needed
      • More appropriate websites needed
    • Virtual Fieldtrip
      • First SL fieldtrip?
      • Green water treatment plant
      • Hugely successful

      • Pupils had fun!
      • Pupils attendance was up (especially for a daily 8.30am Science class)
      • One pupil excluded during course – but attended virtually (unprompted)
