My presentation, entitled “El Secreto de Ek Balam: Building an Immersive Experience for Language Learners, has been accepted at the First OpenSimulator Community Conference 2013. I will be presenting on Saturday, September 7 at 12:30 PDT. In the presentation, I will “discuss and demonstrate El Secreto de Ek Balam, an OpenSimulator project for Spanish language learners. Although in the preliminary build stages, the project incorporates open-educational resources, game-based learning and virtual worlds to create a language platform that engages students in a more active method of language acquisition. The session will engage attendees in a discussion of virtual worlds for languages and education in general.”
Please let me know if you would like to attend and I will give you all the details.
