Global Kids was thrilled to invite Professor Gee to Global Kids Island today. Professor Gee spoke on a live audio stream while trying on different avatars created by teens. At the same time, we invited adults within SL or outside SL to listen in on the audio stream and participate in the live chat via Sloodle (a first for the teen grid - it worked great!).

For those of us in the field of games and learning, you might have heard of Professor Gee from the University of Wisconsin or read one of his books.
Jim pretended to be a special alien visiting from a planet unknown. This friendly alien was looking for an appropriate avatar outfit to "fit into" as he explored Second Life for the first time. He was offered all sorts of avatars designed by the teens through an avatar design contest.
