Press release: Second Places announces the Launch of the first Private Virtual WorldÂ hosted on the Unifier Platform
The secureÂ private world is for kids aged 3-18 and not accessible to the public.
This immersive environment hasÂ three locations:
CANVAS â€“ Childrenâ€™s Art at the National Virtual Arena of Scotland
“The curriculum of learning aims to achieve a transformation in education in Scotland, through theÂ totality of experiences and nothing gives children a better experience than interaction,” saidÂ said Mark Duffy, managing director of Second Places.
CANVAS takes art from Scotlandâ€™s 32 Local Authorities and places them on a virtual island, whereÂ kids from throughout Scotland log in through Glow, the worldâ€™s first national intranet for education,Â and have the ability to visit art work from other children, all from the comfort and safety of theirÂ classroom or home.
In total there are 1,024 pieces of art on display, as well as a central gallery which will show themed art exhibits or have an expert do a demonstration, or curate a walk and talk.
Linlithgow Palace â€“ Recreated
Presently a ruin, destroyed by fire in 1746 was once one of the principal residences of the monarchsÂ of Scotland. Second Places have recreated the palace to its grandeur at its pinnacle, when Mary,Â Queen of Scots would have visited.
As well as beautiful detailed rooms, visitors will find information points telling stories and providing historical information about the model.
