      ***2016 EDU: Web-world use case: Conversational spoken English! Or any other language

      Web world use case: 
      Conversational spoken English!
      Or any other language
      Language learning is well suited for virtual worlds and web-worlds offer an easy way to get started. Immersive learning on the browser.  Here is an introduction to web-worlds as they might be used for instruction in a language. 
      The old way to learn a language
      • Virtual worlds are used extensively for language instruction (see after the break).
      • They let learners learn the language in an environment where they will need it.
      • Learners can be immersed in the environment they are talking about.
      • Learners can practice together as they talk about things around them.  

      Why are virtual worlds not used more for language learning?

      • Virtual worlds require expensive, graphics capable computers.
      • You have to download and install a viewer.
      • You have  to learn how to move around, communicate, and activate things.

      Now you can put a small virtual world in a browser.

      • It will run on almost any modern computer.
      • You talk, move, sit and click on things.  A lot like you do on a flat web page.
      • If you come in when someone is there, they can help you.
      • People can easily come in on impulse, just to see what is offered.
      • If people like your web-world, they may want to come into your virtual world.
      • Web-worlds, progress and possibilities: Summary

      Drop by and let's talk
