Illinois Council for the Teaching of Foreign Languages Conference Presentation

Virtual Reality for Language Learning: Insights from a Fellow Teacher

I got invited to speak at this conference for language teachers in Illinois.  It was a chance to share my expereince teaching with fully immersive virtual reality technology.  

My theme was "Plan for Adventure".  Teaching with a technology like VR gives rise to all sorts of wonderful learning experiences.  It can also be a minefield of hangups, setbacks, and hiccups.     

The great thing about doing a pilot study is being a pioneer in the field of VR technology and getting to relate that experience with my fellow educators.  It is definitely a fail to plan plan to fail scenario.
