ISTE at UK Island!

UK Island resident Mannifest Destiny was the featured speaker for yesterday’s ISTE Speaker Series Session. The session started at ISTE island, and then moved to the University of KY Island for a tour of Mannifest’s Drug Endangered Child site.

From the session description:

ISTE Speaker Series Session
Drug Endangered Children in Second Life
Mark Schneider, University of Kentucky (SL: Mannifest Destiny)
Children in Meth homes face constant dangers in this environment. These dangers include inhalation and exposure to toxic fumes, ingestion of chemicals or contaminated food, increased risk of developmental delays and disabilities, and increased risk of child abuse, sexual abuse and injury. The Drug Endangered Child Training Network has designed a SL site which mimics a meth lab living environment. We would like to invite the ISTE attendees to view the meth lab, make observations, and meet afterwards for discussion.

Images from the session have been added to the UK Island Flickr group.  Other images:
