The World of Begabungs

Summer-Camp 2011 

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, scriptin, 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.

The monthly fee of 20,-- Euro per child covers all classes and personal mentoring at specific time. It also includes access to the virtual world and use of the webforums. The projects starts on July 1st and ends on September 30th 2011.
