The World of Begabungs is a virtual World for Gifted Kids (12-16) from around the world. In the virtual world „The World of Begabungs“ we will give ten children of the age between 12 and 16 from all over the world the possibility to work on projects in secure environment in the internet. The world is based on OpenSim, an opensource version of SecondLife TM, and access is restricted to the participants and the mentors, so the children can work and interact in secure surroundings. In addition to the children’s own project they can participate in classes about different topics, eg. scripting, graphical design, three-dimensional building and more. The projects and classes are tailored to the children’s interests. Playful project-oriented learning with fun, mentoring, enrichment, and meeting children from other cultures are the goal of the project. Since this is an international project the main language will be english.
I am so excited to start this project at July 1st and be a mentor for 10 gifted kids till September 30th 2011.
