A Croquet Mars Colony Simulator

A video of six kids collaboratively co-constructing a simulated colony on Mars using a Croquet-based EduSim 3D Smartboard application prototype running on both a networked smartboard and several personal computers. This work is being done by Rich White of the Greenbush Southeast Kansas Educational Service Center. I am told that the kids really engage with this.

I've been experimenting with this environment for a couple of hours. It does not seem as if it is something the average teacher will be able to use, but I see many ways to utilize the system in a classroom. Arranging the items is somewhat laborious, but with practice (lots of it, mind you), I think you could create quite the little virtual learning domain.
