Teaching with a panopticon in Second Life
December 21st, 2006

Sometimes a panopticon is… a teaching tool:
This is for a class, wherein the instructor felt traditional dorm/office spaces failed to elicit community among students. As she writes,

I want the students to watch each other, to observe how others are using their space, to be encouraged to talk to each other about the space, the class, SL, and their experiences. Stay tuned to see if it works.
