Educating Counsellors in Second Life

A story from our sister site, Metaverse Health

John Wilson has done an interesting interview with Edina Renfro-Michel from Montclair State University. The topic is the education of counsellors, and the outcome has been improved learning outcomes from students who took part in the Second Life than those who didn’t.

As Edina mentioned in the interview, the virtual worlds aspect improved overall knowledge i.e. those student integrated their wider learning from textbooks, podcasts etc as well. It’s a recurring and somewhat unsurprising theme: the 3D learning experience is improving outcomes.

Have a look for yourself:
