Teaching and learning with MUVEs- Educational tools for language classes:games and quizzes

Page history last edited by carmendell64@... 14 years, 6 months ago




I teach English in a secondary school, but actually I’m also a specialized teacher for students in special needs. I spend half of my time as a Professor for a CALL Lab at the University of Palermo. After many professional experiences abroad and in Italy I’m currently doing research on blended learning, videogames and social networks. My key interests include: learner motivation, encouraging learner autonomy, ICT and the use of Web 2.0 tools and virtual worlds in teaching and learning languages, non verbal communication, investigating the use of SL in education, portability to SL of lessons learnt from e-learning of English and Italian teaching, social networks. Actually I'm offering free activities and classes for people who want to learn Italian or have a basic knowledge about this language and culture (Italian Pronunciation, Café Italia, Italian Classes for Beginners).

I’m glad of working on some educational projects in Second Life because I am eager to learn more about teaching and learning with Multi-Users Virtual Environments.
