Immersive Games for Language Teaching in Virtual Worlds
An educational game area for teachers to try out more than 50 games for language teaching in virtual worlds. Poster boards with clear instructions will be displayed next to each game so anyone can easily play the games at any time during the conference. In addition, community brainstorming boards will be set up for attendees to add ideas to on the vocabulary, grammar, and language functions that can be taught with the games.
