How Facebook Killed the Virtual World

How Facebook Killed the Virtual World | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Facebook’s near-universal appeal — and virtual worlds’ near-universal failure — has as much to do with presentation as anything else. The very concept of a virtual world works against its acceptance. If I’m your great-aunt and I need a place to post pictures of your cousin’s bat mitzvah, I don’t necessarily mind joining a network in order to do so. But do I really want to join another world?

Action research: Irish in a 3D world

IRISH IN A 3D WORLD: ENGAGING PRIMARY SCHOOL CHILDREN

 

Gene Dalton, Trinity College Dublin Ann Devitt, Trinity College Dublin

 

While the majority of people in Ireland speak English as a first language, the minority Irish language is spoken daily by approximately 3% of the population even though is a compulsory subject in Irish schools. Recent research has shown the language to be in crisis, with consistently declining standards of attainment in schools. This paper presents the first cycle of an Action Research project aiming to assess the potential of using a threedimensional virtual environment (3DVE) as a platform for task-based learning of Irish in the primary school. The action phase of the cycle consisted of an intensive pilot of a language learning intervention using a 3DVE (n=25 children aged 9-10 years). The reflection component was multiphase, involving analysis of pilot outputs, re-evaluation of the literature and an in-depth user consultation (n=15 children aged 10-11 years), inspired by Student Voice methodology. The user consultation findings indicated goal orientation as the primary driver for children learning in a 3DVE with social connectivity understood as a given in any such environment. This paper offers a novel classification of games and virtual worlds for language learning which serves to integrate the two research literatures in a meaningful way. Language(s) Learned in this study: Irish

 

Keywords: Action Research, Computer-Assisted Language Learning, Virtual Environments, Game-Based Practice, Minority Languages.
