Schome Art Exhibition

Schomers on the adult grid of Second Life have been putting together an art exhibition that opens formally at 9pm on Thursday the 11th December and ends at 9pm on the 13th. There is a giant platform in the sky above SchomeBase, supporting 15 separate plots including 14 very varied exhibits and one Schome Infopod (accessed by a ride on the Schome mini-railway!). This exhibition represents a huge amount of work and effort and is well worth a visit. You can find the skylift inworld on SchomeBase at [ground level].

ReLive08 and the importance of community

The Schome Park Programme works because of the thriving community which all learners (young and old) have spent so much time creating and supporting. We celebrated this at the ReLIVE08 conference which had a session devoted to The Schome Park Programme. Thanks to all staff involved (and particularly to Amba who co-authored and presented the first paper and suggested the collaborative staff presentation). See more pictures on the Schome wiki, search for the Relive08 tag on Flickr and view the more detailed write-up on the Schome Park bliki.

Skinningrove Jetty

Work on recreating the Skinningrove Jetty began in Schome Park, and is being continued on the Second Life Grid at Sea Turtle Island. A film of the jetty's reopening will be screened in Feb 09 at the Animex International Animation Festival.

Time Explorers

Time Explorers sessions linked history and archaeology, making connections between the two. Early in 008, the group constructed the layers of a Roman road, carried out a virtual visit to the Caves of Lascaux, built a series of aqueducts and re-enacted the destruction of Pompeii by Vesuvius. The team entered the Y Factor competition and came second in the national finals. View images from Schome Park relating to history and archaeology. View London conference presentation.
Thanks to RM, JDC and Sums Online, sponsors of the Time Explorers' entry into the Y Factor competition for innovative approaches to learning.

Living and Learning with the Internet

Have a look and help build our online course materials for Living and learning safely with the net with public versions of course resouces and community built material.

Schome in Space

Our proposal to launch a real-life satellite to measure and record Earthshine was named as one of the finalists in the UKSC.
The final proposal was submitted and came third in the national finals.
You can see Mars' poster about the project on display in the Schome blog.

SEGfL evaluations published

The South East Grid for Learning, who collaborated in Phases 2 and 3 of the Schome Park Programme, have published two evaluations that may be of interest to teachers (and related educational professionals). Check out:


The SpARTans created a series of video accounts of their projects in Schome Park. There are now 24 YouTube videos featuring Schome Park, and we have our own YouTube channel where you can view them all and catch up with videos from other educational projects in Teen Second Life. Or, if you'd rather, you can check them out in the wiki.

What is Schome?


Schome is going to be a new form of educational system designed to overcome the problems within current education systems. It will meet the needs of society and individuals in the twenty-first century and will be a system which values and supports people learning throughout their lives. Join us.
