Rik in Article on Teen Second Life Closure

The Journal on Transforming Education Through Technology has published an article on the closure of Teen Second Life that opens with a quote from me:

"It's like somebody died." That's how at Rik Panganiban described the K-12 education community's reaction to the closing of Teen Grid at a recent inworld meeting between educators and other members ofNonprofit Commons in Second Life. "It's a horrible tragedy that I wish could be avoided."

Writer Denise Harrison does a well-researched piece on the impending shuttering of the Teen Grid, what it means for educators, and what other alternatives are out there.
