28-30 September 2012
A 3-day conference for language education in virtual worlds.
CALL FOR PAPERS
Deadline 31 July 2012
All experts from the field of innovating teaching and learning of languages in virtual worlds are invited to contribute their own professional or academic efforts and to present them in a scientific paper and presentation.
The 6th SLanguages Annual Symposium is addressing in particular language acquisition using situated and experiential learning, serious and educational games, research in the field of communication in 3D environments, teaching resources, and other related fields.
The conference will take place on EduNation in Second Life throughout the weekend Fri-Sun, 28 – 30 September 2012 and will be preceded by various pre-conference workshops, amongst others a workshop for those new to Second Life.
Presentation format include slides, workshops, demo lesson, show&tell presentations, tours and machinimas. Machinimas are videos taken of 3D environments and we are especially delighted to announce a machinima competition for videos of language learning conversations this year.
SLanguages Annual Symposium was founded by Gavin Dudeney of the Consultants-E in 2007 and in 2010 a committee took over from Gavin under the leadership of EU funded AVALON project coordinator Gary Motteram. SLanguages is attended to by around 400 language educators from all over the world and all of the sessions will be streamed in Adobe Connect, so that those without avatar are able to observe.
