Rockcliffe University Consortium (RUC) on Avacon grid: 
Central library and digital smarts
The Central Library of RUC has excellent resources for learning about education in the social virtual worlds. Here I focus specifically on the coverage of digital literacy (in academic speak) or street smarts on the digital highway (in vernacular).

This collection of new essays illustrates the broad appeal and impact of RPGs. Topics range from a critical reexamination of the Satanic Panic of the 1980s, to the growing significance of RPGs in education, to the potential for “serious” RPGs to provoke awareness and social change. The contributors discuss the myriad subtle (and not-so-subtle) ways in which the values, concepts and mechanics of RPGs have infiltrated popular culture. -- From the website
