We are very happy to have been included in a story in the Japan Journal last month:
The article talks about Second Life, Pacific Rim Exchange, and the possibilities of this platform.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
“There probably aren’t many English teachers in Japan who go to work carrying a samurai sword, dressed in battle armor, and with a large Stars and Stripes strapped to their back. Happily for Chris Flesuras though, in 3-D virtual world Second Life, nothing is impossible.
In real life, Flesuras works at Kyoto Gakuen High School, but his Second Life alter-ego “Flo Federal” resides in the Pacific Rim Exchange Island—an online project between his school and its sister schools in the city of Modesto, California. From the start of the Japanese academic year in April, over 100 American and Japanese students will share the specially constructed virtual island.”
