MyVirtualChild and MyVirtualLife prompt students to apply developmental principles as they raise a virtual child or live a virtual life. These authentic simulations show how developmental concepts play out over the course of a person’s lifetime, from childhood through adolescence and adulthood.
Realistic scenarios with a range of responses to choose from form the backbone of the MyVirtuals products. Just like in the real world, students’ parenting decisions and life choices combine with environmental and genetic factors — determined by quizzes students take at the start of the program as well as assigned at random — to shape the development of the virtual character. And because it is driven by a unique set of choices made by the student, each MyVirtuals learning experience is customized to be personally relevant and deeply resonant.
The new releases of MyVirtualChild and MyVirtualLife include a modern design and functionality, contemporary issues, and diverse side characters who better represent the breadth of people we encounter in the real world. They’re included within Revel® Child Development and Lifespan Development products, and are also available for standalone adoption.
