Virtual Reality session – IH Barcelona
February 9, 2019
Talk title: Virtual Reality in English Language Teaching
There is much hype surrounding the area of VR – Virtual Reality, and a great deal of excitement about its role in language teaching and learning. VR experiences come at three levels: low, mid and high-end. Experiences can be exhilarating or frustrating; motivating or de-motivating. This session aims to de-mystify the area for language teachers. Based on the Chapter on VR for the LT SIG publication ‘Digital Innovations in Language Learning’, the session draws on research, and updates teachers on the promise of VR in areas such as ESP (English for Special Purposes). The session will take place without headsets, and involves no avatars or voice-recognition software – just you and the presenter IRL (in real life)!
