What was undertaken with this project is similar to other projects that have implemented virtual worlds in education. One of the main differences is that this project occurred in a regional public primary school using a content creation virtual world that could run on a network protected by a firewall. Using Sim-on-a-Stick gave this group of children the opportunity to discover ways to communicate ideas and be engaged in learning that they previously had not encountered. In term one 2012 it was a proof of concept in terms of the ease of use and the engagement of the children and the school community. As a result Sim-on-a-Stick will continue to be used in 2012 by this class and a number of other classes. The university has also started to implement the use of Sim-on-a-Stick with more of the pre-service teachers in a bid to introduce virtual worlds into all schools. A comment on the pre-service teacher’s blog sums up the experience “Sim-on-a-stick isn’t perfect but for now it is the only way we can access this type of technology at the school and we are having a brilliant time being innovative with its applications.”
