Introducing Virtually Anywhere in Second Life
Narrative-based learning for languages
Narrative-based (project-based) learning of a second language. Following narration concentrates attention on the language. And a project can exercise the production of that language. Virtual scenes related to the story can provide and environment for developing the story.
- Virtually Anywhere is a trans-media experience for language learning.
- Students collaborate in the creation of a new fiction based on an existing series.
- The story line is from the audio series by Cambridge Assessment English.
- The series is about students struggling with coursework.
- A mentor appears and takes them on travels to virtual scenes.
- The virtual scenes fit with the narrative.
- The narration is entirely in the target language.
- The project is to write new episodes in the target language.
- The virtual scenes provide an environment for the new episodes.
- Think like a coder. Think like a planner. Think like digital teaching assistant (DTA). Computational thinking is really concrete planning.
