Great information from Rafi Santo....
I thought I'd share with you all the recent independent evaluation that was completed about the Science through Second Life project that we ran during the last school year. The project integrated Second Life and wide range of web tools into a standards based high school science class in New York City. Among the findings:
- Students' attitudes towards science-related careers changed positively with the StSL curriculum.
- Students' self-efficacy and self-confidence in their abilities to do science-related work increased.
