Spanish Language Learning at Escape: Using Virtual Worlds to Teach Language

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join us for a tour of Escape where you will find a variety of locations that present authentic language learning opportunities. While strolling through the plaza or investigating the old pyramid, you will encounter NPCs with whom you can casually converse about targeted vocabulary and grammar topics. Learning objects, embedded throughout the environment, take students through the process of attaining knowledge, practicing that knowledge and finally assessing their learning in an engaging and innovative format.
