Designing in virtual world of Second Life

How difficult is for an educator to innovate in teaching and learning? To invent and implement new pedagogies?

I am interested in designing and implementing an educational environment for teacher training and professional development in the virtual world of Second Life.

Has anyone else ever tried something like this?

You can learn more about Wonderland, which is free and open source software, at http://openwonderland.org. Many educators appreciate the ability to run Wonderland worlds behind their own firewalls as well as the ability to drag and drop content into the world, making it easy for students to share existing content. In addition, Wonderland supports in-world application sharing, so students can collaborate using applications like a shared whiteboard, Firefox, or Open Office. The Wonderland community is welcoming and eager to help newcomers, so please feel free to join our discussion forum or Facebook group. Good luck with your project!

You might want to Google edusim, Immersive Education, Project Wonderland, and Rezed. Google Wave also has some waves related to this. Opensim is an open source alternative. I am trying to use Opensim with my secondary students but am having difficulty getting it networked.
