Jacob is doing independent work on the Reaction Grid because he was in band and could not sign up for the regular Reaction Grid class and completed the chess set in less than two class periods! Way to go Jacob! He doesn't have the company of other avatars so he is very focused on the work. Working in a virtual world is also a social environment. Luckily Jacob had a chance to experience that in a previous class.
Students are now working with Rokuro to create a sculpted prim chess set on the Reaction Grid after finishing their new t-shirt designs. Rokuro is a virtual lathe, so the students also learned what a lathe does in real life. (See video below)
