I like those possibilities too Cyn, the social construction of reality can be quite literal in a space like SL.  I have a Holodeck thast I was hoping could be used a Research poster space - where researchers would constrcut rooms where the 3D representation was a summation othe research.. the same idea could be applied with your example...

...with effective faciltation the possibilities for deep understanding are enhanced...

... the possibilities for Critical Pedagogy are also phenomenal..  imagine analysing and critiquing the entire process of constructing the environment... challenging the underlying epistemology... the assumptions we make when building such spaces... and then transferring that understanding to other social institutions...

I love the subversive nature of it... the liberational qualities... and the potential for recognising the complex social structures tht come into play....
