Add a dimension to your teaching: an introduction to language learning in Virtual Worlds

1,060

Published on

Give an extra dimension to your own language learning/ acquisition, then apply it to your teaching. An introduction to language learning in virtual worlds.

Two enthusiastic language teachers and their ‘avatars’ describe their own personal and professional teaching and learning journeys through the magical, virtual 3D world of Second Life, reflecting on how a third dimension enhances the experience and effectiveness of language learning (whether for your own or your students’ benefit) and inviting you to join them in a supportive, collaborative and lively network of teachers from across the world.

    [2010/09/30 00:02] Whrek Nirvana holds his hand up and traces down his arms, 'Traders and brands, each of these was given to me when I was slave to one or another, the Ravinica guild added the roses every time, or was it gruuls

    [2010/09/30 00:03] Relm Foxdale smirks. 'You've never seen mine, Gadget.'
    [2010/09/30 00:03] anna Begonia: you were a slave? *goes nearer to Whreck* how can be that you were takein slave? You are so strong *smiles half shyly half mockingly* why did you not defend yourself?
