I am frustrated with the restrictions on the teen grid (Teen Second Life) for educators. I have purchased an island on the Reaction Grid (http://reactiongrid.com) and am hoping that will work better. I'm interesting in hearing other's thoughts about using OS or TG for K-12 education. Anyone else in the group use ReactionGrid?

Thank You Caro and Evalyn. I did not know about Reaction Grid. Is it mainly for K-12. What can you do with your island? can you set it up for teaching purposes.
