 Nursing education 2.0: Second life.


 Nursing Education Perspectives, 28(3), 157-157.


  The author, a much published nursing faculty from a Colorado university, presented information and details of an emerging technology called virtual worlds, and how one called ‘Second Life’ (SL) could be used to transform/enhance nursing education. SL was described as a 3D virtual world built and owned entirely by its residents, thus it provides opportunity for the use of simulation to enhance skills practice, experiential learning, and experimenting with new ideas. The author states that virtual worlds work well with constructivist learning theory and presented several resources for faculty interested in this web tool. She also presented several very good examples of the use of virtual worlds in health education including the Center for Disease Control and the American Cancer Society. Provided an excellent information resource for nursing faculty seeking innovative technology to incorporate into nursing education.
