How can we harness the power of 3D virtual words (Second Life™, Open Sim) to help young people develop social skills and navigate difficult transitions in their lives? The Inter-life project team have developed 3D private islands to help answer this question. The team are looking at two groups, the first are gifted and talented and looked after and accommodated children and the second are first year university students. Visitors to the islands can engage in creative and confidence building activities in a safe and supportive online environment.
