Getting into Virtual Reality Part 1: Creating Virtual Reality Worlds

Getting into Virtual Reality Part 1: Creating Virtual Reality Worlds | Mobile Phones and  Language Learning | Scoop.it
Now another ten years on VR seems to be making another surge into the mainstream consumer market and the field of education. Whether it’s here to stay or not largely depends on how accessible edtech companies can make this to mainstream teachers and classrooms around the world and the ability of edtech companies to provide experiences that have genuine educational outcomes that match the kind of investment that will be necessary to enable students to access those experiences.

Such amazing tool to take advantage of technology :) Tools like this ones are excellent to enhance the development of  la guage skills while taking advantage of technology. As it not only enables students to use their devices to learn, it also promotes speaking skill. It is a shame that it is only available for iOS. 
It would be great if the application could be used in different platforms.

Being an iPhone user in Canada, I thought I would test Siri to learn French in iOS 11, but unfortunately, it is not yet able to translate from Canadian English to a second language. However, for the traveler who is at a novice language level and is traveling to a country where she/he doesn't speak the language and just needs to get from point A to point B and would like to bridge the divide in communication, this feature can be useful.

Duolingo as I see it, is the digital form of Collaborative Learning. Language learning with this app makes it achievable for all students of any socio-economic background to develop their listening and speaking skills in French. The app is free and it works through asking translation questions through vocabulary. It then moves to phrases. It speaks only in the target language and uses the image and voice with the target language to develop metacognition of learning a second language. It uses the similar model of CAPTCHA where advanced language users can make corrections thereby making the learning process collaborative.
