Anybody here home-schooled? What did you think of it? What would you think of a more "virtual world" approach to home-schooling? Think 2nd life, but more kid-oriented and a little more structure (like having to complete studies and home work, but then getting virtual cash/rewards and other virtual world perks)
Not sure what you mean exactly, but from what I can tell young kids fall in love with games especially virtual reality type things mostly because they are very good at imagining things, not so much because of the content. This 6 year old comes into the lifeguard office every sunday, and he plays the same 3 games on a learning handheld thing, and they all sounds horribly boring, but he loves them.
in summary, whatever direction you're going with it I think it has potential.
