How can students get a deeper understanding of the day-to-day challenges of those living in poverty? One way is through a Second Life computer simulation. UW-Green Bay Prof. Chris Vandenhouten, from the Professional Program in Nursing, working with Instructional Designer Leif Nelson and student employees Julie Harvey and Kyle MacDonald, created a simulation program that students used to “experience” what it’s like for a family to live on the edge of poverty. Here’s a YouTube link about their project.
