2020 #VWEDU: #DTA: La Fiesta de los Muertos. A video made in a virtual world, with dancing skeletons. And how a DTA could use a video


La Fiesta de los Muertos.  
A video made in a virtual world, 
with dancing skeletons. 
And how a DTA could use a video. 

La Fiesta de los Muertos.  A celebration popular in the Spanish-speaking countries of the Americas. Reasonable content for a class in Spanish.  Such a video could have a voice over in Spanish.  A DTA could check comprehension by asking questions about the video

Virtual worlds for another language


The DTA could work with a video like this

  • It would give instruction with a voice-over narrative--in the target language.
  • The way to measure comprehension is to ask questions about the content.  
  • In the target language, of course.
  • And you don't have to score right or wrong.  You can use a time score.  
  • Skilled comprehension is fast. 
  • If the objective is conversational fluency, there should be little delay in answering.
  • Multiple choice questions should be adequate to motivate attention.
  • And for formative assessment.
  • Just-In-Time (JIT) learning in virtual schools, maybe with DTA coaching. Language as an example
