The project focuses attention on game-based learning and immersive teaching of foreign languages through the use of video games and virtual worlds.
Starting from a literature review of the sector, the project envisaged a recognition of the training needs of teachers in this area and proposed field testing of some immersive video games for learning foreign languages, with the aim of verifying their impact. The activities took place in three different virtual environments: Second Life, Open Sim, and Minecraft. Finally, a MOOC for teachers, in English, was designed and delivered on the issues of game-based learning and immersive teaching of foreign languages.
