The MacArthur Foundation "Spotlight" blog just published a post I wrote about some Global Kids "Aha!" moments we've had while conducting our virtual educational programs over 2008. Thanks to Barry Joseph for inspiring this post and suggesting the different lessons that I wrote about.
This post is also a plug for the "sneak preview" of MacArthur's new "Foundations" island in Second Life on Monday, November 17. We're working with USC's Network Culture Project to put together several hours of interesting programming on how the virtual world is impacting the real world in various positive ways.
