    19. 24. Loyalist College Customs and Immigration students LEARNING OUTCOME RESULTS Before September 11, 2001, Customs and Immigration students at Loyalist College spent three weeks closely tailing professional border guards to experience the daily routine of their future job. In a post-911 environment however, this was no longer allowed.

Loyalist College Customs and Immigration students LEARNING OUTCOME RESULTS Before September 11, 2001, Customs and Immigration students at Loyalist College spent three weeks closely tailing professional border guards to experience the daily routine of their future job. In a post-911 environment however, this was no longer allowed. Training suffered until the Director of Educational Technology at Loyalist College catalyzed a virtual border crossing simulation in Second Life for Loyalist students. The amazing results of the training and simulation program have led to significantly improved grades on students' critical skills tests, taking scores from a 56% success in 2007, to 95% at the end of 2008 after the simulation was instituted .

    22. 27. eLearning environments still are used as uni-linear broadcasting of information and for transferring files. The multi-channel nature of human communication, the student’s own activity and participation, and a feeling of common presence is all but there.

    24. 29. Experiences of arrangements that work
    25. 30. Experiences of arrangements that work Blending classroom, the web & Second Life
    26. 31. Experiences of arrangements that work Begin with: contact teaching and joint intro to the Second Life Print-outs: short SL-guide, map of virtual environment, instruction Second Life: affordance and activity of the environment continous contact In the web: SL-wiki, own eLearn env., backchannel (Skype or ACP) Blending classroom, the web & Second Life

    28. 33. ” In literature the theory is text-based. Good place for that is a book or a VLE.” ” SL-pathway substitutes e.g. timeline-work or groupwork of literary history.” ” Is was surprising how teacher got to know the students in many levels here in SL.” ” The students remembered the learning matter well - even after a long time.” <ul><li>” European Literary History” </li></ul><ul><li>Virtual learning pathway for 2nd level students </li></ul><ul><li>Compared learning in two secondary high schools </li></ul><ul><li>some students used SL </li></ul><ul><li>some students used text book </li></ul>Literature teacher Heidi Heikkilä City of Vantaa
