Abstract: This poster presents a cross-case analysis conducted on two out-of-school programs based on virtual environments: Global Kid's "I Dig Science" curriculum in Teen Second Life and the GLS "casual learning lab" based on the online game World of Warcraft. Using a coding framework representing the shared instructional goals of the programs to analyze ethnographic data from both sites, we compare the nature of learning in the two contexts.
