Abstract

Virtual Learning Environments, or VLEs, can offer a number of unique affordances for learning computational concepts. This paper offers three design principles for VLEs: adoption safety, immersion identity, and constructability; as well as a discussion of their implementation in one potential VLE: Second Life.
