What is a Virtual World?
 A virtual world is a 3D computer environment
 in which users are represented on screen as
 themselves or as made up characters and can
 interact in real time with other users. These
 representations are called avatars. Students
 and teachers learn to design and construct
 using an open source software called
 OpenSim http://opensimulator.org/

Virtual World         Macquarie ICT Innovations Centre is a collaboration between the
                    NSW Department of Education and Training and Macquarie University

Project Description
    Students in Year 10 explore 3D Virtual Worlds to
    design and construct Architectural Prototypes for
    Australian cities that incorporate ideas such as
    sustainability, function and aesthetics.These
    students have explored designs that addresses
    perceived needs for the future such as
    communication, energy, food, housing, recreation
    and transport.

 Student comments …

       “I hope that in the future it (3D Virtual Worlds)
       could be a way to learn and an opportunity for
       students to associate this way of learning with
       the word „education‟.”

       “Trinity (3D Virtual Worlds) has changed the way
       I design…I will now design with a very open mind.
       This project has pushed me to work harder to
       develop my concepts and ideas.”

              • Engagement

                • Inclusivity

                   • Connectedness

             And the final word…from teachers
 “The technology provides for the quick activation of
 ideas, construction of shapes, use of textures all
 within a 3D space. Students are fully engaged in the
 whole process of having the power to create major
 structures, to move around, in and out, above and
 below their building structures. This is total immersion.”

       “What could be better than to witness a group of
       young people all grow in self-esteem, confidence
       and collegiality?” Peter Wootten
