Carina Girvan

In Second Life you can program using Linden Script. A chap from MIT wrote Scratch for Second Life (S4SL) and Carina Girvan did extensive research about its usage in the classroom. The software from Eric Rosenbaum lowers the floor for programming Second Life. Second Life itself has the nice feature that you work together and that your work stays there indepent of you being logged in. Carina had a good talk about this last april Slane Castle (#dojocon). Since then she succesfully defended her PhD on the subject, AND found the funding to present it once again in Barcelona.
