ProtonMedia and Business

As educators, we are always trying to tie student learning in with business and industry standards and technology to help prepare the next generation of our labor market. Our goal is to promote and foster the growth of active citizenenship, empower them with deductive and critical thinking skills, and finally to lead them through learning with industry standards technology. In order to do this as educators, we need to look at not only our national economy, but also business and industry trends.

As a result, a fascinating website has crossed over my desk from the SLED list serve entitled Proton Media - This website link offers a video overview of the companies mission and goal. The company has created a flagship product in the 3D world called Protosphere as a new way to communicate, work and learn through simulations. This 3-D world is outside of SL, but it is a definate sign that programs such as SL are having an impact on industry and learning since more and more of these types of business are beginning to pop-up.

More can be obtained from the Protosphere Brochure.
