Abstract

In D6.1 we reviewed different games applications that can be used to support lifelong learners and identified Second Life as a suitable environment for conducting exploratory user studies as part of the MyPlan project. This report presents the main findings of this study. It outlines the results from the Learning Day session held at two sites in London on 9th May 2008, a summary of the evaluation findings of the efficacy of using Second Life for supporting learners with career choices and educational decisions, and some suggested guidelines for tutors using Second Life to inform career support with their learners.

In Section 2 of this report we explain how the session was structured and summarise our preliminary results. Section 3 reports on our findings while Section 4 discusses key issues identified. Section 5 presents a list of guidelines for tutors using Second Life that emerged from this study, and Section 6 highlights our conclusions. The appendices of this report include: supporting materials including: study invite (A), study details (B), informed consent form (C), images from the study (D), survey questions and responses (E-F).
