Language Learning Quests.
After meeting at the Arrivals area to the British Council Isle (http://slurl.com/secondlife/British%20Council%20Isle/228/129/39) we will split into groups and participants can try one of three Language Learning Quests (Shakespeare Quest, Merlin Quest or Robin Hood Quest)
After 20 minutes, we’ll all get together in Sherwood Forest, where there’ll be a 20 minute talk and discussion on this type of game-based learning in Second Life. Participants will find out from the designers of these quests what processes they went through, how they were changed after being piloted by students, and will get some ideas of how they can start to design something similar themselves.
Graham Stanley spends half of his working life as a teacher of English at the British Council Young Learner Centre in Barcelona, Spain and the other half as Project Manager of the British Council’s Learn English Second Life project. This involves managing a 3D self-access centre for 13-17 year-olds for the British Council and working with the other partners of the AVALON project, which aims to develop best practice through language learning scenarios for adults in Second Life.
