Virtual Worlds for K-12 use

Organised virtual worlds for teens

There is a wonderful project called Quest Atlantis (QA) which is an international learning and teaching project that uses a 3D multi-user environment to immerse children, ages 9-16, in educational tasks.

Teen Second Life can be used by students between 13 and 17 years but adult access for the teachers is very restricted. Educators working with teens ages 13-17 do their projects in Teen Second Life on secure, private estates. If you have questions about working in Teen Second Life, please email
