Second Life for Hair & Beauty:

Second Life for Hair & Beauty AS034

Where our journey started…:

Where our journey started… What our cohort looked like… U19 – Year 11 & 12 cohort Disengaged hair/beauty students Creative and social characteristics – ‘hands-on’ learning Limited IT/technology skills, albeit ‘Facebook’ pro’s Varying levels of literacy

Where our journey started…:

Where our journey started… Limitations of training environment… Access to simulated salons when facilities are shared Establishing an environment that replicates contemporary, working salons Accessing a diverse range of clients Costs of a fully stocked product range comparable to real salons Providing adequate opportunities for risk-based learning, e.g. OH&S, financial (EFTPOS), etc.

Design Brief…:

Design Brief… Contemporary salon with ‘wow’ factor Salon design needed to emulate the functionality of a ‘real salon’ including retail/client waiting area, functional cutting stations – side-by-side, shampooing area and private staff/training area Engaging for students’ learning Provision for large screen, and sufficient space for training activities

Partnership…:

Partnership… Building on previous Second Life projects, i.e. Virtual Hotel project ‘Standards in Virtual Worlds’ Architecture generally in 2 nd life is mediocre Essential requirements in selecting an architectural design firm that would provide an ‘awesome’ outcome – ‘all about the feel and atmosphere’ and the ‘buzz’ Place where students would want to learn Based on award winning designs, Australia’s leading design firm Clever Design was selected as the Polytechnic partner for this project.
