Community Day is the day (typically Thursday) when all the classes in all the schools officially log into 3D World. And while classes and students can log into the world any day of the week at any time of the day, community days are opportunities for students to communicate and interact with others — which is a crucial component of the program.
On community days students:
- meet peers from other schools;
- speak with other students;
- speak with teachers;
- chat with students;
- make friends; and
- engage with the adult facilitators (who assume the roles of bankers, shop keepers, waiters, ice skating instructors, and so on).
When students log into 3D World on other than community days, they are able to explore and interact with the world (e.g., ride a bicycle, arrange furniture in apartments). However, the cross-school communication will be missing.
