In May of 2007, an avatar contest was held on Global Kids island in Teen Second Life. James Paul Gee, the noted professor, came to Global Kids to try on the various avatars- such as a chicken, a cyberninja and a dragon -- while reflecting on a variety of issues related to games, learning, avatars and online identity.

This segment is called:

On Game Addiction
"If a person spending all their time in the World of Warcraft or Second Life, then we ought to start to ask, Why are they doing that? It means something is being given to them in this world that isn't being given to them in the real world. And we have to remedy that problem in the real world rather than just bemoan the fact that they are looking at a world that, to them, is a better world."
