What is "gather town" and why we chose it?
Gather town is an application that allows to communicate online. Moreover each of the users has its own avatar that can move around and interact with other users just like in real life.
We have decided to implement it in our project because it makes the educational process much more lively. Each of the pupils will get access to the space we created on Gather and he/she will be able to walk around it and interact with teachers and objects. In particular there will be classrooms with whiteboards where weekly lessons will take place.
