BBC NEWS | Technology | Web worlds 'useful' for children

This just in, on BBC news: BBC-sponsored research finds BBC virtual worlds are "useful" for children

Virtual worlds can be valuable places where children rehearse what they will do in real life, reveals research.

They are also a "powerful and engaging" alternative to more passive pursuits such as watching TV, said the BBC-sponsored study.

The research was done with children using the BBC's Adventure Rock virtual world, aimed at those aged 6-12.
