Teaching and learning in Second Life
In the last months I started to explore the potential of Second Life. I´ve just been hired by Language Lab as a Spanish teacher and have also been accepted to participate in MUVEnation a one year postgraduate programme, at distance, for future and in-service teachers who want to use innovative methods and tools to address learners motivation and participation issues in compulsory education.
” MUVEnation will help teachers acquire the necessary competencies to integrate massively multi-user virtual environments (MUVEs) into their teaching practice ; by exploring the links between : virtual worlds, learning and motivation, active learning and pedagogical approaches that include socio-constructivism, situated learning, project based learning, learning by doing, game based learning, simulations and role-playing.”
I created a new blog called Teaching and Learning with MUVEs where you will find all my Second Life journey.
