Meet the dad who quit his job to run a Minecraft server for autistic kids

Meet the dad who quit his job to run a Minecraft server for autistic kids | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
The rules of Autcraft are simple. No bullying, no griefing, no stealing. There's a survival arena and a hide-and-seek minigame module, all under the watchful eyes of a small cabal of moderators. Stuart "AutismFather" Duncan is always a private message away. He used to work as a web developer, but today he runs the server full-time. It's a peaceful place: a private, whitelisted Minecraft community built specifically for autistic children, their families, and their friends.Duncan keeps the gears running, but his primary role is to simply be visible. "For the first two years I was talking to two kids per week who were suicidal," he says. "Eventually my work suffered. I'd be talking to my boss and I'd say ‘hold on a minute, this kid needs me.'"Running Autcraft earns Duncan significantly less money than his former day job, but he takes donations on Paypal, sells cheap in-game perks (like bypassing the teleport cooldown), and hosts 13

A virtual reality study on social environments

A virtual reality study on social environments | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Experimentally studying the influence of social environments on mental health and
behavior is challenging, as social context is difficult to standardize in laboratory
settings. Virtual Reality (VR) enables studying social interaction in terms of interpersonal
distance in a more ecologically valid manner. Regulation of interpersonal distance
may be abnormal in patients with psychotic disorders and influenced by environmental
stress, symptoms or distress.
David W. Deeds's insight:

VR can solve ALL the real world's problems! ;)

more...
Fernando José Cassola Marques's curator insight, May 16, 3:22 AM
This VR paradigm indicates that interpersonal distance regulation in response to environmental social stressors is unaltered in people with psychosis or UHR. Environmental stress, social anxiety and distress trigger both people with and without psychosis to maintain larger interpersonal distances in social situations.
