Who watches the watcher?

The British Computer Society (BCS) island in SL is locked for use with school children from around theworld. It is used for learning modern languages and computer science. We describe the legal and technical protections in place for both children and teachers. We criticise the SL access policies and suggest improvements.

A short presentation takes place inworld at the MAIN VENUE and then Nullity will be joining the Adobe Connect Room and will screenshare his desktop for the tour of the BCS teen sim, which is closed for security reasons to the general public.
