Language learning and teaching in virtual worlds
Hi everyone. I hope everyone is having a great semester. I was wondering if anyone has done some work in identity construction in SL? I have come across some info but mainly anecdotal. Can anyone recommend any articles or any work being done in this area?
I know these two articles are not exactly on identity construction, but I think you could find some ideas there and possibly more indications for further articles and work to read.
Riva and his team are conducting some interesting research in Virtual Worlds and Virtual Reality.
