What the Metaverse Means for Language Learning and How You Can Prepare for It

Nergiz Kern presented on 'What the Metaverse Means for Language Learning and How You Can Prepare for It' at the 7th online Future of English Language Teaching Conference.

See the video recording below:



There has been a lot of talk about the metaverse in the past year, and language teachers, teacher trainers and schools might be wondering what the relevance of it is for them and their students. In this sessions, we will first look at what the metaverse is by looking at different definitions and metaverse platforms and applications that already exist. I will then provide reasons why language teachers cannot ignore the metaverse developments and show how they can prepare for teaching in the metaverse. We will also look at what research says about learning in virtual reality, which is the most immersive experience in the metaverse, and what research tells us about language learning in virtual reality.
