Gamification in XR Language Learning

UniVirtual Experience vLanguage Team - Educators in VR


Many have heard about the advantages of learning languages through games, and many teachers have incorporated games into their language teaching or learning journey. XR games and apps allow language teachers to try new kinds of interactions, learning tools and environments. Does this mean that immersive games makes learning languages more engaging, fun and memorable way compared to regular game-based language classrooms? Let’s talk about advantages of applying XR games as new language learning environments with our special guests:

Jack Ratcliffe is CEO of realiaXR, a start-up building Noun Town, a fun second language learning VR game.

Lance Powell has explored how design practices effect social VR community management and understanding harassment in these environments.

Malcolm Lee is passionate about how the brain learns, language learning, and new gaming and VR technologies.

Stephanie Wössner is a freelance consultant/ speaker with expertise in XR Game-based Learning, AI, Design and Futures Thinking, & the Metaverse.
